Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2006, $59,234)

The purpose of this program is to extend its work in empowering Vermont high school students by reaching out to more low-income and at-risk youth and engaging them with the global issue of oppressive child labor, both as students and leaders, in their schools, communities, and the world. To achieve the goal of developing the social capacities, confidence, and practical skills of teens, the project consists of four components: 1) training in leadership for social action, run by college and high school faculty; 2) field study service learning trips to communities where young people are affected by child labor, or where organizations and policy makers are addressing child labor; 3) peer education programs for other students around Vermont; and 4) a statewide youth conference on child labor issues at the School for International Training (SIT) in Brattleboro, Vermont.
