Empowering Students to Affect Positive Social Change

Rivers is committed to helping students use their "talents, imagination, intellect, and compassion" to affect positive social change. One way we help them do that is by having them engage with people in our local communities and with issues of both local and national importance. In addition to the personal enjoyment and growth that come from hands-on engagement opportunities, students develop their understanding of the complexities and root causes that underlie many societal issues as they interact with people who have had varied life experiences. Our hope is that these school-run community engagement experiences will promote students' interest in examining the history, policies, and economics of social issues in this country.

Community Awareness and Engagement

At Rivers, we believe in the importance of allyship and self-education when it comes to issues related to bias, prejudice, and discrimination. To aid in that effort, we have developed a series of “Do Five Things” learning guides, a framework that allows us to respond to real world events and provide all members of our community with the opportunity to engage around these topics.
