Event description

Description

This is a two-day workshop; both sessions must be attended in succession.

Session Dates & Times:

  • Monday, September 25, 2017 from 1:30-8:30 p.m.
  • Tuesday, September 26, 2017 from 8:30 a.m.-3:30 p.m.

Course Description

This two-day session is for any educator (teacher, support staff, administrator) that wants to explore authentic ways for white students and students of color to develop their leadership skills, engage in collaborative inquiry, and examine the impact of privilege, power, and prejudice through a racial lens.

Day 1: Participants will learn about the development of Dare 2 Be Real (D2BR), an interracial student leadership group in use across the region at the secondary and post-secondary levels. In order to increase adult capacity, facilitators will ensure participants’ understanding of the ten tenets of systemic racial equity. Participants can expect to explore ways in which students can internalize anti-racism as a part of their individual and collective mission.

Day 2: Participants will review the ten tenets of systemic student leadership development for racial equity and will engage in activities and discussion around the three basic staples of the Dare 2 Be Real student leadership curriculum framework. Essential questions for these frameworks ask participants to explore identity development and its role in developing youth, community, and particularly anti-racist leadership. Critical pedagogy from this session will be linked to student development programming and potential formative and summative assessments that can be used in classrooms and retreat settings to develop the racial consciousness and cultural proficiency of secondary students and the adults who guide them.
