Projects that highlight teens in teacher roles are beneficial for both kids and teens.
Great for Kids…Teenagers can be extremely effective teachers of young children. Children respond well to teen teachers and teens can be positive role models.
Great for Teens…Attitudes toward teachers and school, self-confidence, and sense of accomplishment can all improve. Engaging in the meaningful and positive activity helps teens avoid issues such as alienation from families, schools and communities and involvement in risk-taking activities.
