Connecting Brentwood School students with Darfur Refugees

On Wednesday, April 23rd, Brentwood School once again welcomed Team i-ACT for a presentation to help connect Southern California kids with refugees in Darfur.  The 30 minute lunchtime showcase included a dozen well written, and well read monologues from the Brentwood School student body.  Half were spoken from a Darfuris’ perspective while the other half from the perspective of a Brentwood student.  The goal was to connect these bright young minds and vivacious souls, to those that are similar in age but living an unfathomable life across the globe.  Like i-ACT Co-Founder and Director Gabriel Stauring said, “We want to make it personal.  We want these kids to become educated and empower themselves to stand up for what is right and wrong, and of course not to detract from the natural feeling of empathy.”
