Project Pioneer is Carroll University’s Saturday pre-college enrichment program which focuses on helping high school students build the skills, knowledge and mindset necessary to succeed in college and beyond.  This year, Project Pioneer’s program “Initiating Change in my Community” will mirror Carroll University’s 2015-2016 campus theme, “change.” Fifty high schoolers from across Waukesha and Milwaukee will engage in three, month-long academies that will lead them through exploring their community and identifying a challenge within it, researching that challenge and finding solutions, and taking action. During this process, students will address a real challenge that their community faces while also building skills around the 4Cs: Critical Thinking and Problem Solving, Creativity and Innovation, Communication and Collaboration.  Students will learn that their voice matters and that when they speak up and take action, they can make positive changes in the world around them.
