United 4 Social Change is a nonprofit startup that develops effective civic leaders who write persuasively, speak passionately, and actively participate in the creation and dissemination of ideas. The need for civic leaders (members of society who have the awareness, desire, and capacity to drive social change) is becoming apparent all over the world. People are either unable to see social ills, don’t appreciate the need for change, or don’t have the tools and skills to spur change. This is why our work at U4SC has become ever crucial in making sure that everyone, and not just political and economic elites, are participating in civic leadership.
Why Teacher Council?
At U4SC, our main objectives are to educate students about important social issues while helping them find their voice so that they may grow into strong civic leaders within their communities. We offer a wide range of programs that help students strengthen their writing and speaking skills, but we want to continuously grow and improve our programing.
The U4SC Teacher Council is a group of motivated educators committed to bettering the education of future civic leaders. Members of the Council will serve as advisors to U4SC in the development and implementation of new programs and materials.
Responsibility and Commitment
The Teacher Council will have quarterly meetings with all council members and our Director of Programs. Council members will act as ambassadors between U4SC and their schools. Tasks and other responsibilities will be decided on at each meeting.
