Open to high school students
Session Two (July 12th - August 6th)
This course will prepare students for different emergencies and provide opportunities for them to take initiative. Students will learn what actions to take during a wildfire amongst other disasters, how to prevent them, how to assemble emergency kits, and much more. They will meet with the instructor for online lectures and class discussions once a week. With their peers, students will be given the option to help their community through self-proposed projects, such as a social media campaign, with the information they learned. This course will allow them to develop their critical thinking and leadership skills over the summer. Volunteer opportunities and resources in class and outside of class will be given throughout the four weeks.
2 p.m. PST on Thursdays, 1 hour classes
