L.E.A.D. is a ten-week youth mentorship and leadership program for students from 5th, 8th, and 11th grade being run in partnership with the YWCA and Dickinson student Oanh-Nhi Nguyen. The mentors will be select students from Dickinson College.
The mission of L.E.A.D. is to create a safe space where students can learn about social justice and diversity issues, to empower bystander intervention and to encourage students to act with self respect and respect for others, and to define their passion in today’s culture. The curriculum will be based on pre-existing prevention and education models that include race, gender, culture, sexual violence, media, and cyber-bullying.
Applications are due by 5 p.m. on Monday, April 15th, 2013 to firstname.lastname@example.org or the Office of Community Service and Religious Life.
