Workshop Description

Teenagers live in a culturally diverse world where learned prejudices result in relationship barriers and often lead to conflict in schools, at work, and in the community. This session provides an overview of the 3-day Intercultural Leadership Skills for Teens workshop that teaches students skills that promote positive intercultural interactions and strategies for reducing the negative impact of prejudice, oppression, and bullying. Students will learn the nine characteristics of an interculturally skillful leader and develop a personal commitment pledge to take action to make their schools welcoming and more inclusive for all people.
