Addressing the issues of discrimination and safety in our communities requires a holistic approach—looking at the root causes of conflict and developing creative solutions for more inclusive environments. We offer a number of programs designed to give young people the tools to make a difference on issues of conflict and discrimination with the goal of creating a school or group culture that’s fosters positivity and inclusivity. We can tailor a program to meet the needs of your group—whether the program is for traditional or non-traditional leaders who are passionate about their school or community, or for students who have been identified as at risk.
