The activists' work is truly amazing, but this series is slow-paced and somewhat boring. The "expert" activists that visit the communities do help the local groups a bit, but their appearance seems like a forced reality show-type intervention. Teens interested in learning more about global issues or how to affect change in their own communities will find some useful tidbits of inspiration. Otherwise, kids might find other activism-based documentaries more entertaining and inspiring.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
