Initiatives for Developing Equity and Achievement for Students (IDEAS), a program of EDCO, facilitated a Student Leadership Conference for 11th, and 12th grade students from member high schools. The purpose of the conference was to engage students from a range of racial and ethnic backgrounds in conversations on issues of racism, intolerance, discrimination, and allied behavior.
GOALS OF CONFERENCE:
"The conference was such an incredible experience, and a lot of fun! Meeting kids from other towns and hearing their stories made you feel inspired to make a difference. It may have taken up my Saturday, but it was SO worth it!" Kavya, Grade 11
