I currently live in Christchurch, NZ and while I make my living as a dog trainer and small business owner, my background is educating humans:) with a MEd from UIC. I currently volunteer in Christchurch with young people in Woolston and Aranui and plan to get involved in a similar community justice program for youth when I return to the USA in the new year. I am passionate about improving health through nutrition, exercise and life style changes and how to help young people and their families make positive changes on any budget. J. Guerin
What do you hope to learn, or share, on this forum?
I hope to learn about other programs/initiatives, share my own experiences, especially ideas about how to make information RELEVANT and therefore exciting to young people and how to use students experiences/stories part of any presentation and the information instructors are trying to impart.

Jackie, thanks for joining the forum. I encourage you to follow this group and see how interns working with me in Chicago are creating new visualizations to interpret strategies I've posted on blog articles or in pdf essays. You and others could enlist students in your own communities to create visualizations of your ideas so more people might embrace them and give them their support.
