Beyond Differences is unique in that it is truly led by the students themselves. All of its programs and initiatives have been developed and have grown out of hearing the voices and feedback of students. Students all want to be good, to feel good about themselves, and to make others feel good about themselves-- and Beyond Differences empowers students with those tools. The foundational belief is that these students really CAN make a difference and change the culture of their middle schools. And they are doing so! With the support of these kids, their parents, and some excellent educators, Beyond Differences is expanding and will continue to make a difference in the lives of the people it reaches.
