The Pangaea Project is a nine-month leadership development program that empowers low-income high school students to become local community leaders with global perspectives. The program is designed around local and international service-learning, community leadership, social action, human rights, team-building, and global awareness. Each year, a specific social justice issue such as Housing and Homelessness, Environmental Justice or Labor Rights and Fair Trade is selected to serve as the theme, providing the framework to make local and global connections. The goal is to inspire participants to recognize their own capacity to be agents of change by exposing them to inspiring local and international grassroots community leaders. Students meet with and work alongside these empowered change-makers, people who have overcome adversity in their own lives and devoted themselves to organizing others to join them in working on solutions to challenging issues that their communities face.
