BGL really has distance learning figured out.

Maianna, Age 9

Summary:

Children unite! For kids out there who feel called to take action, join Banyan Global Learning and special guest activists in Los Angeles, California to learn about current activism movements. Choose from one of ten different programs or attend some combination. Children will apply what they learn about activism to support their own causes. Grounded in social and emotional learning, Student Activism provides a safe space for children and teenagers to explore challenging issues while empowering them to take action. These Student Activism virtual field trips create a platform for young activists to unite and have their voices heard. Join us for an inside look at activism groups in Los Angeles, with special guests like organization leaders, storytellers, musicians, lawyers and more!

 

Scholarships are available to students who qualify for reduced and free-lunch.

Enrichment LIVE's guilt-free screen time combines the academics of school, the fun and social interaction of camp and the entertainment of live tv. Our expert distance learning teachers smash through screen fatigue to lead club members through real-world, hands-on experiences including virtual field trips and arts explorations.

Each day is high on fun and self-expression with enrichment activities like dance, yoga, art, foreign language, mindfulness and music all of which connect to each day's central theme.
