Change-Maker Sessions


To expose students to professionals that make a difference and are directly related to their academic trajectory in high school.


Students will deepen their understanding of AP coursework and their belief that there is value in succeeding in AP coursework and on the AP exam.

Action Steps

  • Identify change-makers within the community at large to speak with students.
  • Have students prepare for the presentation by creating questions related to the change-maker’s topic/focus.
  • Through Q&A, students explore how change-makers use their knowledge to make world better and connect how knowledge learned in AP class could help them do the same.
