More than a one-day event, WE Day is connected to the free, yearlong program WE Schools.
Designed to enhance a school or community’s existing social initiatives or spark new ones, WE Schools provides participants with curriculum, educational resources and action campaigns, encouraging students to further their curricular learning and develop life skills to succeed beyond the classroom.
In the 2017/2018 school year, over 1260 schools and school groups across California improved the world through WE Schools.
Students and educators volunteered over 1.4 million hours and raising more than $1,000,000 in support of over 660 global and local causes including bringing awareness to homelessness, food security, LGBTQ+ rights, access to education, access to clean water in oversees communities and environmental issues.
“Across America, we are surrounded by young leaders who are working together to positively impact their local and global communities. It’s incredibly inspiring to see young people who are committed to changing the world,” said Craig Kielburger, co-founder of WE. “WE Day California will bring together thousands of students who are raising their collective voice as they work towards creating a future for all — this generation is speaking up and the world is listening.”
