Diversity Leadership Project Student Blog
The overarching goal of the Diversity Leadership Project is to help high school students across the country become stronger leaders among their peers – now and in college.
The program empowers high school students to create a more accepting, diverse community, and prepares them to face social justice issues head-on in an effective, collaborative manner.
The project gives students the opportunity to work in small peer groups to research, gain understanding, and develop real-world solutions to issues they identify in their community.
This process increases the participants’ awareness of other cultures, as well as gives them a chance to contemplate and explore their own culture. This type of experiential learning encourages teens to befriend peers whose beliefs differ from their own worldview.
Because of this, they develop a greater empathy for social justice issues and an understanding of how bias affects our communities every day.
