Description

“E.A.9.11 stands for "Everything After: a 9.11 Youth Circle." Okay, so what does that mean? The short answer is that it's an online dialogue for high-school students to talk about - you guessed it - any and all issues that have come up since September 11th.

It's been six months since the attacks, and in some ways life has gone back to normal. But "normal" feels different than it used to - teens around the United States have been traumatized by the after effects: stuff like the anthrax scare, the war in Afghanistan, racial intolerance at home. Young people need a space to set their own agenda and talk about the emotional impact of this new climate, and explore how these events continue to affect their lives.

That's where the "Youth Circle" part comes in - this discussion is only for high school students between the ages of 14 and 19. And it's not just your usual run-of-the-mill online discussion either. It's based on the idea of a Small Group Dialogue.”
