Event description

Description

At the heart of the Desmond Tutu Center is a simple, bold idea: to identify, train, sustain, and connect the next generation of emerging young leaders struggling for social justice and reconciliation around the world and right here in Indiana. The Desmond Tutu Center Youth Fellows Initiative is designed to support youth who want to change and challenge existing norms that prevent their community from achieving equality. In July 2016, the first cohort of Youth Fellows selected from Central Indiana traveled to South Africa on an educational tour led by the Desmond Tutu Center. Upon their return, the Youth Fellows have applied what they have learned by implementing a social justice project in Central Indiana.

The Project Symposium will create a space for the community to come together around the inaugural Youth Fellows, partake in the premier of their South Africa Study Trip Documentary and learn about their social justice interests. Additionally, attendees can welcome the second Youth Fellows cohort, a group of nine South African youth who will be concluding their study trip to Central Indiana by attending the Meet & Greet at 10:00a.m.
