A global youth citizenship curriculum
WeConnect is both a program model and a curriculum. WeConnect helps young people see that they are participants in a global society. It prepares them to thrive in culturally-diverse settings. WeConnect was developed for middle school-aged youth, approximately ages 11-14, but can be adapted for other age groups.
Use WeConnect in non-formal settings such as after-school programs or clubs to help youth
examine their everyday lives,
take action that leads to positive change and
understand their responsibilities to each other and the world around them
In addition to the full-length curriculum, the authors have designed 1½-hour and 3-hour training modules and are interested in working with partners who want to train staff or volunteers on the model and curriculum.
