Activists Coming Together (ACT)

Description

ACT brings students together who are passionate about making an impact on the world we live in.  ACT students learn and practice skills to create change while building community with one another.  All genders are invited to apply!

Commitment

ACT is a one-year commitment, which includes:

  • Monthly meetings- discuss readings, build & practice change-making skills, share personal experiences and build community.  Meetings are held on the 2nd Saturday of the month from 10-1pm: 
    November 9, January 18, February 8, March 8, April 12.      


  • Action Project– provides participants the structured opportunity to design, implement, and review a project aimed at creating change.   These can be done individually or in a group and should be based on a topic of particular interest and passion.

  • Shared reflection of your ACT experience- offers participants the space and place to critically examine how they have grown personally and as agents of change over the course of their ACT experience.  This reflection will be shared with a larger community and could be an ideal contribution to your career portfolio.

Applications for ACT are currently being accepted and are available for download below. Deadline for application is October 4, 2013. For more information contact Amy.Howton@uc.edu
