Missions in Progress at UT Elementary

Agent 11 had a great visit to Agents at UT Elementary!  Here’s the status on the missions their teams initiated earlier this year:

Team Terrorism has designed care packages for refugees and plan to research how they can send them to the Red Cross to be distributed.

Team Racism wrote inspirational speeches that they plan to deliver to the younger students at UT by going from class to class spreading a message of equality and inclusion.

Team Pollution is working on a UT NewsCast to be broadcast to younger students on how they can help their environment.

Team Child Abuse met with their Counselor who posted flyers on campus to remind students that they can talk anonymously and safely about any issue effecting their lives. They are writing original stories to inspire younger students to speak up.

Listen to the Agents encouraging others, in their own words, here and here!
