Commitment to Action

We Day and We Act USA

Commitment by

Free The Children

In 2013, Free the Children committed to empower over 150,000 young people to take action to improve their communities through the expansion of We Day and We Act programing across the United States. We Day is a stadium-sized event that brings together celebrities, local heroes, and thought-leaders to celebrate young people involved in Free the Children's programs. We Day is more than just a one-day event; it launches a year-long series of actions to better local and global communities. Students cannot buy a ticket to We Day; they must earn one through participation in ?We Act?, a year-long educational program that works to provide teachers and students with the tools, resources, and skills they need to bring social issues to life in the classroom.
