7. Respectfully Disagree
Watch a short video about One Small Step, a public radio project that brings people who disagree with each other together for meaningful conversations. Practice talking with someone who disagrees with you about something — for example, a movie, a kind of food or a political issue. Listen to them and share what you think without using sarcasm, name-calling, insults or eye-rolling. Tell us how it went.
8. Connect to Neighbors
Join your neighborhood Front Porch Forum and write a post about your experiences taking the Good Citizen Challenge. Under 14? Ask an adult to post for you.
9. Act Locally
Do something to help people in your community. For example: Make a cheerful sign, weed a public garden or help seniors learn to use digital devices.
10. Think Globally
Do something to learn about or help a community far away. For example: Watch a documentary, or attend a vigil, rally or event about a global issue such as war or climate change.
