Mission: Inclusive communities is a human relations organization confronting prejudice, bigotry and discrimination through educational programs that raise awareness, foster leadership and encourage advocacy for a just and inclusive society.
Programs: Educational programming - inclusive communities provices educational programming to the community at large through: leadership programs for middle school and high school youth to co-exist peacefully and inclusively in a diverse environment; opportunities to build character and leadership skills for students that have graduated from these leadership programs; training for individuals who are interested in becoming volunteer staff, facilitators and directors; and building awareness and reducing prejudice among college students; educators, business professionals and the community at large.
This is a tremendous organization that has been in existence since the 1930's. The mission is "Confronting prejudice, bigotry and discrimination through educational programs that raise awareness, foster leadership and encourage advocacy for a just and inclusive society." The majority of the programs are offered through schools, from elementary to university, but some are also delivered through the workplace. These are not your mother's diversity programs - these are long-lasting, impactful programs that change participants' lives. I cannot think of a better way to positively influence our next generation than to support this organization.
