Youth Converts Culture (YCC) is an Alabama-based initiative combining technology with empathy to push education forward. YCC believes that empathy, student voice, and social awareness should drive instruction in the 21st Century. The YCC panel (brought to you in partnership with IDEA—the Institute for Democratic Education in America) will focus on constructing new, responsible, and engaging learning strategies designed to empower our youth to grow, communicate, and learn in a way that is congruent to who they are at their root: global citizens connected to the world as pioneering digital natives.
