Join us on November 3rd as we dive into the Big Return! This all day event (Registration 8:30-9:10 workshop 9:10-2:30) will be the starting block for each school launching and developing their school wide project. Work with us and other schools in the St. Louis area as we brainstorm and hone in on ideas to create wildly successful projects that captivate the entire community. Then take those ideas and build them out into actionable projects that inspire, empower, and catalyze a movement of change in your community. You will walk away from this day long workshop with the tools you need to jump start your projects!

Attend The Big Return Summit 2 - Youth Changing St. Louis

Join us on December 6th at Junior Achievement as we take your projects to the next level. This workshop is focused on creating our community of changemakers in St. Louis.  You will have time to share with one another and begin to collaborate.  As a community we will brainstorm challenges and solutions you have faced in the launch of your project, connect with other schools facing similar challenges, share best practices, and meet with experts in the field. This day long workshop will again build off the skills and resources your school needs to create sustainable projects in your community.
