students shoulder to shoulder

Students Shoulder to Shoulder's (SStS) mission is to inspire high school students to engage in responsible global citizenship through on-line study, full immersion service programs, and public presentation. Yet, SStS's philosophical underpinnings, educational programming, and economic structure are profoundly more than providing youth with an opportunity to do community service in other cultures, as noble as that might be.  SStS is a prescriptive educational program, a catalyst to connect the moral imagination of youth to the global community that is imminently theirs. SStS provides cogent opportunities for adolescents to engage their creativity, knowledge, curiosity, and energy with the purpose of preparing themselves and their generation for responsible, intelligent, and compassionate global citizenship. The program's curriculum core, developed by SStS staff and tailored for each trip, is shaped by the traditional academic perspectives of economics, culture, politics, ethics and geography. We refer to this aspect of our program as the "Five Lenses of SStS". Course instructors use these five disciplines to develop pre-trip, on-site, and post-trip curricula.
