Go Global: Choose 2 Matter

Choose2Matter is a global movement that challenges people to accept that they matter, to accelerate the message that everyone matters, and to act to change our world.
This online platform allows students to create, connect and share their thoughts, ideas, social interactions, friendships and interests with the world. Teachers joining the community can create a “classroom” space in which teachers and students can share with one another, and with the world, classroom content and student work.
