Middle School (5th – 8th grade)
Our Middle School Class is Using the “Heeding the Call: Qualities of a Justice Maker” Curriculum
Heeding the Call, is a social justice curriculum that not only explores linked oppressions in our society, but also encourages participants towards personal growth in values that counteract the marginalization of others. Workshops on empathy, courage, abundance, joy, and other qualities ask participants to recognize how these standards can be tools for justice. Additionally, the program includes more concrete tools, such as suggestions on how to be a good ally and tips on the language of conflict resolution. True stories of courage, sacrifice and collaboration, role-plays, games, and more will feed youth’s rising realization that as people of faith we are all called to love justice—not just with our words, but also with our deeds.
