On November 30th, young people around the world were ‘silent’ for 1 to 24 hours in solidarity with children who are being silenced by poverty and exploitation. The Vow of (Silence) is a Free The Children initiative that is meant to attract as much attention as possible to raise awareness and create real social change. Richland students, staff and Faculty took part in the campaign for a third consecutive year to ‘take a stand’ for children’s well-being worldwide and give a voice to the millions of children around the world whose basic rights have not been upheld.
This September, our Richland Ambassadors met with staff committee members to express their thoughts on the Richland Community and making change on a local and global level.
Each student made quite insightful comments about their learning, and the importance of being a good role model and helping others.
