High-School Year-Long Program

Cultural Leadership high-school students participate in an intensive year of over 450 hours of programming, including cultural activities, dialogue sessions, travel/study, public speaking, leadership training, and facilitated discussions on diversity and creating social change.

Courageous Conversations

Class 9 students were recently featured in a Nick News segment about school segregation, because of Cultural Leadership's unique School Swap experience. View their work here.

In July, Class 9 students, and a Class 9 parent,  participated in a discussion on education with independent filmmaker Shukree Tilghman. Tilghman is working on a new documentary revisiting the 50th anniversary of the original March on Washington. The video can be viewed by clicking on this link.

Racism. Discrimination. Hate. Love. Belonging. Understanding. Justice.

Our students discuss and help maintain an environment of mutual respect and open dialogue.
