Don’t forget to keep in mind the core objectives of a Social Action Project
Social action projects…
• aim to create social change to benefit a group who is negatively affected by a social issue
• focus on solutions to the root causes of a social issue
• use ideas and feedback from stakeholders and community members who are affected by the social issue
• educate and motivate other people to take action too
Even though some of the projects your students hoped to implement may not be feasible during this period of social distancing, there are still options available!
Review our Taking DIGITAL Action Starter Kit for new ideas!
Or try to adapt your original ideas to a digital format!
For example, if your students were planning a school assembly to educate their classmates, could an online presentation be used instead? Could it be shared on your school’s social media channels? Could it be put on the school website? Look at some of the suggestions from our original Taking Action Starter Kit with a fresh eye and see if you can think of a way to adapt them. Focusing on the goals and obstacles your students identified can be a big help in figuring out whether you can adapt your projects to still meet the same goals in a digital format!
