HIGH SCHOOL ASSEMBLIES
Through our high school partnerships, we host inspiring assemblies that focus on combating race, gender and social issues, in order to help students be more aware, inclusive and socially responsible.
THE #DOmore ASSEMBLY
PROGRAM DESCRIPTION -
Focuses on teaching students:
- The benefits of diverse communities so that they value and strive for inclusion.
- Social psychology so students can understand their biases and how to break them to actively create more equality.
- Statistics on biases, prejudices and stereotypes, so students understand that being unaware of these things creates conflicts and an imbalance of opportunities for underrepresented groups.
This event is the first step and foundation to ultimately create better understanding, equity and build meaningful/diverse relationships.
PROGRAM OBJECTIVES -
Racial and social issues are prevalent. Students are curious and uneducated about this, it’s our schools responsibility to educate students to break the systemic problem of ignorance. Our partnership with high schools will build a more inclusive learning environment and inspire students to connect with people who are different than them (race, age, gender, socioeconomic class). The students will be educated to understand our polarizing social climate and will be equipped with the tools to create more united communities.
