Cultural Leadership Information Session

Cultural Leadership is seeking curious, courageous, change- the-world-type teens! Come to an information session in the J’s Beit Midrash room on April 19 at 6pm to learn more about our programs for rising 8th-11th graders. High School Program: This award-winning program recruits a diverse cohort of students passionate about social justice. Participants attend monthly meetings and three weekend-long retreats, learn leadership and facilitation skills, explore African American and Jewish history and culture, and discover the pervasiveness of privilege and oppression. Students also participate in a School Swap to witness education inequity, and a Holiday Swap to learn about other cultures and religions. It is a great opportunity to learn important history they don’t teach in school! Participants also embark on a 3-week Transformational Journey to 15 U.S. cities significant to the civil rights movement. On this trip, they will meet with local and national leaders like Supreme Court Justices Ruth Bader Ginsberg, Congressman John Lewis, Senator Claire McCaskill, and Rev. Al Sharpton of MSNBC’s Politics Nation. The application deadline is April 30. Please note that students must currently be freshman or sophomores to apply. Financial aid is available. For more information, please email apply@culturalleadership.org or call 314-725-3222. Camp Cultural Leadership: Not in high school yet? We also offer Camp Cultural Leadership, a 3-week summer camp for rising 8th and 9th graders. The camp condenses the High School Program’s curriculum into a fun 3-week session that gives younger students a taste of Cultural Leadership. Similar to how our high school students take a Transformational Journey, our campers also take a weekend-long trip to either Nashville or Chicago to capstone their experience. This year, Camp Cultural Leadership runs from July 7-July 29. To register for camp or find out more, please visit our website: CulturalLeadership.org. Register now to get the best...
