During our 2020 Summer Institute, collaborative teams of EBRPSS teachers, Amped Community Educators, and youth from five schools across the district worked together to answer our driving question "What are the conditions of student and educator well-being, connectedness, and engagement as civic-minded problem solvers?"
We Amplify Well-Being
An amped education aligns hearts, heads, and hands, humanizing youth and educators by restoring well-being and collective joy to the learning process.
We Amplify Critical LIteracy
Young people are more than test scores. An amped education equips students with critical literacy skills to read the word and the world, turning up the volume so that youth voices can be heard.
We amplify Community-minded Problem Solving
An amped education grows from the belief that young people are not problems to be solved; rather, they are critical problem solvers. Our approach invites young people to analyze and take action on the social issues that affect their lives and worlds.
