AAC MIAMI – Palmer Trinity School Class of 2016


Palmer Trinity School established a strategic alliance with Lonesome George & Co., in order to bring the Academy of Agents of Change to our school as a new Upper School elective. The objective of this full year academic course entitled Social Entrepreneurship is to empower idealistic young people with the necessary skills and experiences to design, launch, and run their own ventures for social change. The course combines Outward Bound’s Experiential Learning methodology and adventure with the framework of Ashoka’s Youth Venture Program. Led by an Outward Bound instructor and supported by the PTS faculty, each of six modules focuses on a different theme and takes place in a different location. Moreover, students prepare for each module and follow up afterward with activities in daily class work at Palmer Trinity.
