RCSA Students Talk Leadership with Nobel Peace Prize Winner

RCSA students met with a Nobel Peace Prize Winner and learned important leadership lessons at the PeaceJam Conference last weekend.

8th graders from RCSA Innovation and High School students from River City Science Academy attended PeaceJam at Florida State University in Tallahassee last weekend.

Peace Jam strives to create and mentor young leaders committed to making positive change in themselves, their communities, and the world.

Students attended workshops and meetings to discuss how they can affect change and solve problems that come up in their lives.

The keynote speaker, 2014 Nobel Peace Prize Winner, Kailash Satyarthi spoke to the students about his journey as an activist and shared his experiences working to end child slavery. Each school had the opportunity to present their service-learning project to Kailash.
