A WORLD OF DIFFERENCE- Peer Leadership Training
As A World of Difference® Institute Peer Trainers, young people assume leadership roles in efforts to create respectful and inclusive schools and communities. An underlying principle of the A World of Difference Institute is that learning about social justice issues is a life-long process.
By engaging in this process, Peer Trainers learn how to effectively respond when they hear racial slurs, name-calling, and put-downs in the hallways, lunchrooms and classrooms of their schools.
They also develop the skills to lead interactive discussions and workshops for their peers and younger students. The A World of Difference Institute Peer Training Program provides Peer Trainers with the training and resources to design and lead interactive programs that promote an environment that is respectful and civil.
