Description: WeConnect is a program model and curriculum designed to show young people that they are participants in a global society and to prepare them to thrive in culturally diverse settings. The curriculum is developed for middle school-aged youth, but can be adapted for other age groups. The program model is designed for nonformal education setting such as after school programs or clubs. The lessons are a coordinated series of experimental and interactive exercises that help guide youth beyond knowing that they are citizens of the globe to an acknowledgment of their responsibilities to each other and the world around them. They help youth examine their everyday lives and move them to take action that leads toward positive change.
