In a world that is becoming more digital, developing global understanding and empathy is more important that ever. Building character and widen perspectives by meeting young adults where they are and guiding them in becoming more self-aware and socially conscious in real life and online is critical. Anastasia will share lessons from her outreach program, Beyond the Huddle
, that she developed with a 2020 high school graduate and presents to organizations and schools across the nation.
