Living and Learning During A Pandemic is the theme of this online youth summit, organized by the Mastery Collaborative, a network of student-centered schools in New York City that use culturally responsive and mastery-based practices. This summit was designed to promote student voice and community-building during the COVID-19 school closures.
The summit will be structured as a daily video chat Monday through Thursday from 3:00-4:00 pm. The summit’s four calls are designed to meet students where they are during the pandemic. The first two calls provide opportunities for students to share their current experiences, coping mechanisms, and feelings about remote learning. The final two calls move on to building students’ leadership skills and supporting their desire to take positive action. Students are encouraged to participate and one adult per school can listen in and offer support.
