Tip Tuesday: Be Inspired!

Learn from the World Around You

As you begin to consider how you may be able to impact the future, be inspired by the world around you! 

  • Observe the problems that you, your family, your school, and your community face. 
  • Read news articles, blogs, and books with an eye for how you could make a difference.
  • Listen as people speak and think about what they say. 
  • Learn about communities around the world.
