Hi! I'm Danielle and I'm supporting the Peace First team. This is such an important and challenging issue relevant to so many people, and I love that you and your peers are taking it on. So many adults have tried to address this, but I think that only young people will really know how to solve this. Your question is a good one. Do you have a good understanding of why people are not motivated and dropping out and, just as importantly, why others <em>are</em> motivated? That will likely help you figure out what is needed to change people's motivation. Have you gathered information on this topic from students, students who have dropped out, educators, parents? It would be interesting to have the perspectives of all these different stakeholder groups. And having those conversations will also help you identify allies to help you implement a solution.

Hi, just checking in on how things are going. Have you been able to learn any more about why students are or aren't motivated?
