Students Lead on Climate Change

For this Earth Day, young people at Mosholu Montefiore Community Center’s Department of Youth and Community Development-funded Cornerstone program in the Bronx have produced an amazing collection of public service announcements about climate change. We are pleased and proud to share them below. 

 

These middle and high school students are the first to take part in Dignity of Children’s new 8-week Climate Change program, part of our Ideas Empowered by Youth project-based learning curriculum. MMCC began offering the program in mid-March, and in a short time, students have already learned new skills and let their curiosity and creativity shine. 

 

We hope you enjoy and find inspiration in these videos. Feel free to share them far and wide!

ALL PROGRAMMING NOW AVAILABLE ONLINE

At Dignity of Children, we hold the health and safety of all in the highest regard. With that said, we are now transitioning all of our programming to an online platform while the world navigates through the current COVID-19 pandemic.

While kids are at home, we remind parents that it is important to keep your children stimulated on an emotional, physical and cognitive basis. Over the coming days and weeks, we will be posting mindful activities on our social media pages to help kids continue to learn while also being able to express their feelings. Remember to create a daily routine for your children that will help them remain excited and engaged!

Additionally, we want to encourage educators and afterschool staff members to take advantage of our online programs for professional development. For questions about DOC programming, call us at (646) 639-7711.

Please remember to take care of yourselves, wash your hands, be safe and stay healthy!
