Youth Rise to the Challenge: Restorative Justice through Art in Philadelphia, Mobility Solutions, and Building Bridges to Immigrant Communities in Dallas

The Aspen Challenge presents three high school teams from Dallas and one team from Philadelphia who developed innovative solutions to issues that have chronically impacted their communities. See these young change-makers take to the stage to prove that entrepreneurial community solutions can be created at any age. Learn how Emmett Conrad and Sunset High schools are fostering empathy and creating support for immigrants throughout Dallas, Moises Molina High School is influencing transportation policy in the southern sector of Dallas and John Bartram High School is promoting restorative practices over incarceration in Philadelphia schools.
