Meet Your Course Facilitator
Matt DeSantis, Co-Founder/Chair - Teen Think Tank Project
Welcome to the Teen Think Tank Project's 1-Hour Advocate Series. I will be your Introduction to Advocacy and Social Activism course facilitator.
I say "facilitator" instead of "instructor" because I will primarily serve as your guide during this course. The actual instruction will come directly from our guest speakers, former WNBA champion Essence Carson and former NBA player Mahmoud Abdul Rauf.
These individuals have spent much of their professional careers advocating for civil rights, equality, and social justice. They were gracious enough to visit with Teen Think Tank Project members to share their insights and experiences of fighting for a more just and equitable society.
Each of these microlessons focuses on a specific idea or concept that Essence and Mahmoud identify as a cornerstone of understanding what it means to become an advocate!
