ECO2school Senior Program Coordinator
My name is Kevin Anderson and I am a project leader for Daily Act’s ECO2school Program. As a mentor to students in many service-learning projects and a facilitator for our Youth Leadership Board, I feel it is important to disclose some thoughts about my philosophy on youth empowerment, education, and leadership.
I view myself as a facilitator of learning. I believe in a collaborative approach of shared power where students are supported in developing the most authentic versions of themselves. My main responsibilities are to make sure students feel safe (both physically and mentally) and supported (both in processes and resources) in our climate/environmental projects. Education is a process that should encourage independent thinking, an understanding of power structures, and foster the ability to create more equitable alternatives. While I don’t agree with how our national and global leadership is responding to our current environmental crises, I choose to support projects/people that spread hope in the reimagining and recreation of a planet where humans and nature thrive together.
