How Wave Makers Benefits Your Child and the World
CEED’s new Wave Makers program for young people 10-16 is a great opportunity for your child to learn critical citizenship tools so they can make a difference in the world while impacting the health of our water resources on Long Island. Through curiosity- and goal-driven exploration they’ll learn about the water bodies and water quality of Brookhaven hamlet and Bellport. They’ll practice collaboration, teamwork, and leadership as they plan and carry out investigations to gain data. With the data they generate, they’ll develop explanations, and build communication skills through advocacy with the community, local politicians, scientists, and interested organizations.
They will develop a personal toolkit for creating positive change in the world, and strengthen their own future at the same time. Wave Makers:
- Is a gift for a child who is looking for something new and exciting to do outdoors.
- Is a unique opportunity for a young person who wants to engage with the wider world.
- Helps your child develop tools that empower them to make changes for a better planet.
- Furthers their personal goals with new skills and experience.
The program takes place on Saturday mornings from 10 a.m. – 12 p.m. and occasional other opportunities, beginning February 5. Email for more information (firstname.lastname@example.org) or register below.
