Program Goals
Students gain knowledge of equity and inclusion practices, develop skills to become their own best advocates against hate and bias, practice safe intervention skills, and learn how to teach and model these behaviors and skills to their peers.  
Educators and administrators undergo training to deliver diversity and inclusion programming to students, develop tools to support their students in building self-advocacy skills, and create and sustain inclusive classroom culture.  
Parents, guardians, and other family members develop the knowledge and skills to support their students in their path towards growth, academic achievement, and self-advocacy.
