Fencing club mentors youth in the art of civil combat
Swords clash. Catlike feet squeak as they pounce back and forth, waiting for an opportunity to move in for the attack.

Get Up, Stand Up

Local teen, Jade Jager, fights for justice
Between organizing (six!) Black Lives Matter protests, starting a BLM Instagram page and meeting with fellow activists, Bend High senior Jade Jager slows down just long enough for us to ask her a few questions.

The inside story

Meet Fourth-Grader, Mackenzie Hunniecutt
If you walk into the fourth-grade wing on a Monday at Lava Ridge Elementary, you'll notice a student doing some of the teaching. Ten-year-old Mackenzie Hunniecutt spends her lunch recess one day a week teaching some of her fellow students American Sign Language.

Inspiring Youth in Local Government

Meet Rebecca McCann, member of the Bend Climate Action Steering Committee
When you think of local government, you don't often picture high school students being part of the decision-making process. Here in Bend, young adults are showing up and getting involved.
