Introducing WeConnect, a Global Citizenship Curriculum that prepares youth to thrive in our culturally diverse world! WeConnect is a program model and curriculum designed to show youth that they are participants in a global society, inspiring a sense of understanding and confidence in relating and connecting to other people.
The curriculum, authored by the University of Minnesota, is for middle school youth (grades 6-8 and ages 11-14), but can be adapted to suit both younger and older age groups. Perfect for afterschool programs, clubs, or camps, and cultural exchanges, the curriculum includes 20 lessons in four sections: exploring, stretching, challenging, and connecting.
