Spread Pluralism, Share Your Voice, Change the World!!

WHO: High School Students from all across the United States WHEN AND WHERE: Every year the Teenage Identity and Diversity Education (TIDE) Conference is held over Memorial Day Weekend. In past years, this conference has been held at Northeastern University in Boston. This year, we are excited to announce that TIDE will be at Stonehill College, located in Easton, MA. WHAT DO WE DO: The conference is planned and led by fifty high school students of diverse backgrounds. The goals of the conference are to: ·         Train teens to communicate respectfully and use their skills in discussion on highly charged issues ·         Develop leadership and facilitation skills ·         Understand what teens are capable of ·         Foster bonds of friendship among the youth in attendance that continue beyond the conference HOW DO WE DO IT: Conference attendees participate in workshops, dialogues, and other activities throughout the weekend that have been planned by high school students specifically for their peers. Adults working with teens can attend a parallel but separate adult track at the conference. More information will be published as the conference approaches.
