Our conference is planned entirely by and for students, and you’re invited.
One of the conference’s most unique aspects is the Executive Committee, a team of some twenty students who plan the conference in its entirety. While the conference’s goals do not change year to year, every other detail is planned by this group of dedicated volunteers. We also take the group through a variety of bonding exercises, to explore their own identity as well as learn about others in the group. The Executive Committee also has a chance to participate in several workshops on different diversity-related topics leading up to the conference.
The committee is open to all high school students. We actively recruit and encourage students from all backgrounds and from a variety of Western Slope high schools to join us for this unique, compelling experience.
The meetings for the 2018 MWDC Executive Committee will begin in July 2018. The group meets weekly through the conference day in October, with breaks for holidays. Regular attendance at the meetings is required, so please consider the time commitment before agreeing to participate.
Meetings take place at Eagle Valley High School during the school year; other locations in Eagle Valley have been identified for meetings during the summer months. Contact Hannah Shapiro at (847) 858-3595 with any questions.
