New SSL Program: Youth Facing Racism
The Washington Center for International Education is offering a new SSL program, Youth Facing Racism. This is a four-week program for high school students engaging American experiences of race, ethnicity, and identity.
This dynamic SSL program includes eight online small group discussions as well as a service project completed at Corhaven Graveyard, a historical burial ground for African-Americans who were enslaved in Shenandoah County, Virginia.
This program has been designed especially for high school students with an international background (ESOL or otherwise), but non-ESOL students and students without an international background are VERY welcome to join as well.
Online discussion groups start weeks of October 5 and October 12. For information and to register, see the Montgomery County Volunteer Center website here or the WCIE website here. Email with questions to email@example.com.
For more information about WCIE, see http://washingtoncie.org/.
