This project is an overview on the process that was taken to incorporate a social action club into a middle school. The project discusses the importance of social action to youth, how it can be incorporated into a middle school, and how to use creative thinking in the process. A draft manual was completed in order to give educators that are interested in beginning a club like this a starting point of where to begin, what should be accomplished, and how. This project is the completion of a journey, which was taken in order to find out more about how to motivate youth, what projects are truly student-centered and meaningful to the youth of the 21st century, and how to structure group meetings in order to make progress.
