Good News Could Mean Great Things For Taos Youth

  • Local Champion: Taos resident
  • Date Funded: May 27, 2022
  • Grant Amount: $15,000

Young people in Taos are inundated with negative news most days—which doesn’t exactly encourage them to think about positive community impact. One Taos local who hosts Good News Good Planet, a radio show and podcast dedicated to good news, wanted to address that problem by helping students become more connected to the community through positive storytelling. Working with the school district, she’s helping to develop a new social studies curriculum for 6th to 12th graders in which students read short, powerful stories and then participate in student-led discussions—eventually applying their learnings toward service-learning projects in Taos. With LOR’s financial support, she’s creating that curriculum and will implement it at schools throughout Taos.

This project is fiscally sponsored by Taos Community Foundation.
