The World Changers Dream Team partnered with approximately 50 students participating in the 21st Century after-school program at Pendleton Elementary School on a month-long project that explored both personal and social responsibility. The team facilitated opportunities for the 3rd through 6th grade students to learn about personal responsibility through a financial literacy curriculum and practice social responsibility by completing service projects together in small project teams. Service hours were completed at local nonprofits including the SC Botanical Gardens, Helping Hands, Clemson Community Cares, and National Health Care. The experience culminated with a celebratory World Changers Dream Walk on the AnMed walking track in early May. Thanks to the sponsorship of Fleet Feet and a generous donation from Michelin, students received a brand new pair of World Changers Nike tennis shoes for the walk, in addition to a customized World Changes award medal.
