REAL Community Youth Leadership Institute
June 3-5, 2018
REAL Community engages an intentionally diverse group of 50 youth and young adults in an immersion experience to create and sustain a diverse, equitable and inclusive community. Youth from different backgrounds, beliefs, and experiences come together to explore their identities, develop their leadership skills, and build relationships within and across those lines of social difference that develop their sense of EMPATHY and can enhance their lives at home, in schools, and in their communities.
