From Mission to Job Description: Developing Value-Driven Programs for Social Innovation in High Schools

Limited Capacity filling up

Participants will go back to school ready to propose long-term, community-engaged, values-driven programs. Based on a school’s resources, they will develop a pitch for the program and draft a job description of a role needed to support this program. Members will complete all this through quick brainstorming activities, short writing exercises, and group feedback sessions. To inform this work, participants will learn about the origin story of Sequoyah School’s Social Innovation Program by hearing from the program’s director, and a faculty facilitator. High school students will coach participants and present work they’ve completed in the program.
Throughout the three hour session, participants will populate a large pin board with their ideas written on individual index cards. On the left will be a collection of values they believe their school to hold. Next, they will list the resources they have access to at their institution. In the third section, they will list the ideas they have for programs they could envision at their schools. In the final column, they will post “job listings” for a support person needed to make this program a reality. We will then string yarn from the values through the resources to the programs and job listings. Each team will be assigned a different color yarn. This should help demonstrate how access to particular resources affects the development of programs, even for schools with similar (or identical) values.
We hope participants will walk away feeling empowered to found innovative programs on their campuses that call on community resources to realize the unique values of their school.
