Every year, Signal Hill partners with a number of local high schools to implement a suite of initiatives designed to change school culture. Upstream in approach and backed by the latest in resiliency research, our Value Project initiatives are uniquely designed to help young people discover their incredible worth and ability to make positive change in our world. And because we use experiential learning in our educational delivery – such as interactive activities and dynamic object lessons – students internalize these truths in their hearts as well as their heads.
In the fall, Signal Hill hosts the Value Project Summit and walks a group of leaders from each school through an intensive weekend of experiential learning. These leaders then return to their school community to run their own Value Week - a 5-day span where they communicate what they learned through art installations created at the Summit. Finally, in early spring Signal Hill reinforces the messages of the Value Project Summit and Value Week with an all-day event for students in Grades 10 &11: the Value Project Conference.
The theme for the 2019 Value Project Conference is ALL OUT HUMAN. Our focus will be to help the 250 students that attend to understand that true human flourishing happens only when we firmly believe in the fundamental value of all people and boldly stand up for the good of others.
The student response to our 2018 Value Project Conference shows that our upstream, experiential approach is working. Young people are changed by our message and inspired to positively impact their communities.
