Our intent with this program, called Chasing the American Dream Series, is to educate and engage our students around current issues, societal shifts, ways to get involved regarding local and federal government, and the upcoming Presidential election.
One program we are going to offer each month will be a fireside chat, formatted after a Ted Talk. Each month will have a different topic but will follow the same format. We will have 3 speakers, and the first two will be informative, and the third speaker will be the call to action, or what can you do about to impact this issue. And the first 50 people who register here to join us for each presentation, will get to eat a meal FOR FREE!
Ted Talk Viewings! Like to learn more and discuss the American Dream? The American Dream is seen differently by everyone. This is an opportunity to view Ted Talks that offer different opinions of the American Dream. We encourage you to check these out.
