Northland Community Schools Grand Opening!

Students celebrated the Northland Community Schools Grand Opening with a Powwow Drum and Dance Exhibition on 9/22/17.

Students participate in We Act!

The Indian Education at Northland Community Schools also participates in the We Act Program. Where students learn about and participate in helping to create change in both local and world wide issues.

The Program

Millions of young people across the globe don’t have the most basic things that we often take for granted: food, clean water, education. The challenges that poverty and inequality create are so large that solutions can only come from our collective effort. Action by young people across North America and the UK that tackles both local and global issues is the strongest step towards a more fair and fulfilled world. Free The Children seeks to create systemic change by empowering a generation of active global citizens to change the world on whatever issues they care about.

We Act is a comprehensive service learning program that empowers a generation to care about local and global issues. The program, which includes We Day and Free The Children campaigns, provides the practical tools needed to turn that inspiration into at least one local and one global action to benefit the issues and causes that youth care about. Designed to enhance a school’s existing service learning initiatives or to spark new ones, We Act transforms school communities through positive changes in student behavior, heightened engagement and the belief that it’s cool to care.

We Act provides:

  • Service campaigns addressing various local and global issues accompanied by pre-packaged resources and supported by social media.
  • Educational resources. Built as issues-based modules, lesson plans can be easily implemented into classrooms, after-school programs, and family learning.
  • Action kits designed to provide tangible steps to take action on the issues youth and educators care most about.
  • Online resources. The ultimate resource for youth, educators and families alike, is a one-stop shop for discovering one’s passion, learning about issues and taking action on ANY cause.
