The Lowery Institute ‘Agents of Change’ Program connects high-achieving undergraduate and graduate students with elementary, middle and high school students in Atlanta’s historic Westside community. In addition, undergraduate and graduate students from Clark Atlanta University’s Whitney Young School of Social Work serve at Forrest Hill Academy, an APS alternative school. The Change Agents “CA’s” are from Clark Atlanta University, Morehouse College, Spelman College, Agnes Scott College, and Candler School of Theology. They serve at M. Agnes Jones Elementary School, Brown Middle School and Forest Hill Academy. CA’s focus on principles of non- violence of the Institute coupled with conflict management, social and self awareness, conscious thought, alternative dispute resolution and peer mediation training. CA’s encourage the younger students through daily interactions to de-escalate potential conflict. Our curriculum is structured to reinforce topics including: respect/disrespect, issues surrounding the use of violence, anger management, emotional intelligence, positive relationships, trust building, discipline, active listening, friendship, acknowledgment, teamwork and problem- solving.  Change Agents also serve by operating our campus pantry, Mimi’s Pantry; on our blog team; participating in our Servant Leadership Speaker Series; Barbershop Series; Dating Unscripted, Don’t Argue-Debate; peer mediation training; Malawi Initiative; Change Agent Tank competition and civic and social activism.
