We believe in measuring the impact of our programs to make sure we’re delivering world-class resources. We called in leading social impact consultants from Mission Measurement to help us understand how the WE Schools program helps educators empower the next generation of compassionate leaders. Because of our dedicated educational partners, we are able to see incredible, transformative outcomes in students across North America and the UK.
“WE Schools has made me more resourceful, optimistic, and a lot more assertive. I’m really shy but I have ambitious goals.”
“They [the students] used to worry about who they were going to play with at recess, who their friends were, what they were doing on the weekend together, and all of a sudden they’re talking about kids in other countries and families in Calgary and what are we going to do to help, and how can we work together to do that.”
“I have so many kids now who want to take a stand and be involved and have their voice heard on issues that go on locally in the city, or they wish they could vote. So it’s promoting a culture of less apathetic people, and it’s empowering them. That’s the big idea.”
I just fell in love with the idea and thought, “Wow this is the way to actually hook students into their own learning and into their own global-mindedness and the community around them.”
