By Rebecca Chambers

R.I.S.E. Academy is a Not for Private virtual high school that focuses on service learning, connecting youth to their community and finding ways to create solutions to problems related to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals. On this podcast the youth in the program interview amazing people who are doing things to create change.

In this episode of the Slacktivism podcast Gracie and Owen’s substitute Sadie interview Troy and Jonny from The Hockey Guys. The Hockey Guys are a group of young men that play hockey at the University Of Wisconsin – Superior. The Hockey Guys Tik Tok was started as just something fun to do with a bunch of buddies – give it a follow, it is entertaining, cute and very PG. What this group of 10 guys didn’t realize would happen, was that they would become Tik Tok sensations. Once they got noticed they realized that they had a platform to make a difference. Now their videos are being used by a children’s hospital in California to motivate young patients to complete their rehab. They are constantly getting messages about how they have made people’s days. Keep following along with them to see what they do next.
