Silicon Valley Faces is a non profit that has a goal of creating a safe community free of Bias and Bigotry. Silicon Valley Faces has a plethora of programs that help them in their mission but the one that stands out the most is camp Everytown. I attended camp Everytown four times and each time I have gone I learned something new. I went to camp as a sophomore and senior in high school, and I just recently went as a counselor in march 2012. Camp Everytown focuses high school students attention and promotes learning by taking students out of their daily environment and guiding them through intense interactions that provoke deep insight and empathy for others. Students experience group exercises about self-identity, race, cultural & ethnic issues, family relationships, gender roles & equality, peer relationships, and conflict resolution. They identify opportunities and solutions to human relations issues specific to their school, and they brainstorm action plans to recreate the Everytown environment on their High School campus.
