6th Graders Flex Their Social Media Muscles for Change!

Zachary Hayes
Summary: 

AOL employees have partnered with sixth graders from Isaac Newton Middle School in Harlem, NY, spending the past semester learning about social engagement as it relates to the digital age. The students were asked as a part of their capstone project to choose an existing organization that incorporates the theme of education. They would then use social media to organize and publicize a fundraising effort for this organization.  Please join us in supporting the students and volunteers of the Citizens School apprenticeship in their quest to promote healthy uses of social media. Watch them on Huffpost Live, contribute to their "We Ghana Build a School" team fundraising page, retweet them, or leave a few words of encouragement on their Facebook page.
