Spotlight: The Space Between
Changemakers in the Classroom
NewGround fellows connected with students at a downtown Los Angeles high school as part of the 2104 Compassion Games - Survival of the Kindest. Like NewGround, the Compassion Games strive to build community, strengthen communication and empower others to make change. NewGrounders explored compassion, a shared value of Muslims and Jews, with 300 students through music, film and more. Check out this video featuring recent graduate, Lia Mandelbaum, posted by the National Association of Social Work (NASW).
