This year, The Diversity Center's School & Youth Events will center on the use of storytelling as a tool for understanding self-identity and community. Stories, whether written, oral, or visual, transcend cultural boundaries and have the potential to lead young people into a powerful space of discovery.
Charter One Youth Leadership Luncheon
The Youth Leadership Luncheon, sponsored by Charter One Bank, invites middle and high school students from Northeast Ohio to recognize the life and work of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and appreciate the message of his legacy. After a banquet-style lunch and keynote speaker, two outstanding students are awarded the prestigious Diversity Champion Award. The award recognizes one middle school and one high school student who demonstrates a commitment to leadership and diversity within their school or community.
Spring Middle & High School Conferences
Over 300 students and educators representing various Northeast Ohio middle and high schools spend a day participating in the spring conference. Students engage in activities and discussions that support the eradication of bias, bigotry and racism in their respective communities and beyond. Students and educators will have the opportunity to network with leaders from communities throughout the region.
