A two-week summer day camp for rising 8th & 9th graders (and 10th graders with permission). The camp introduces and reinforces social justice concepts and ties them to leadership skills, similar to our award-winning high-school program.
- increase cultural awareness through hands-on activities;
- take a day trip to Memphis or Nashville to meet with people and see places important to civil rights, social justice and democracy;
- develop leadership skills.
Cultural Leadership students are taught to grab an ally or two or three when they see a problem, roll up their sleeves, and to get to work. Cultural Leadership is the only program of its kind in the St. Louis region.
