The River Kings are partnering up with Iowa BIG. According to their website, “BIG exists to assist students in developing their agency, efficacy, and passions while gaining valuable real-world and academic skills so they can succeed in a world of rapid and constant change.”
“Iowa BIG is a high school program for sophomore, junior, and senior students within the Cedar Rapids, Linn-Mar, and College Community School District.
BIG is designed to help you lead your own learning journey and discover your gifts, talents, and interests.
BIG is a place where you get to learn through things and work you care about.
BIG is a place to learn not only the “stuff” in courses but how to get along in the world and build the skills to make you “present-and-future-ready.”
Kudos to Myke Darrough, the River Kings’ Partnerships and Promotions director, and the rest of the front office staff for putting this together. Community engagement has been a priority for the River Kings from day 1 – we’re excited to see what kind of projects the students come up with!
