NETWORK FOR SOCIAL JUSTICE

Educate, Engage, Activate

Schools & Youth

The Network for Social Justice’s Schools & Youth Committee seeks to broaden acceptance for diversity and equity in Winchester Public Schools. We accomplish our work by building a strong base of teachers, parents, and students in an effort to generate a culture change towards inclusion in schools and the town as a whole.

Committee Objectives

  • Empowering parents to better guide their children around social and racial justice issues
  • Aligning with the Winchester Public School’s vision and mission
  • Building relationships with parents’ associations, school committees and other nonprofits to share best practices
  • Support all members of the LGBTQIA+ community and their allies by providing resources and programming to local organizations, schools and community members that build knowledge around LGBTQIA+ issues.

Internship Program

Since launching in Summer of 2020, our intern program has filled 49 slots for high school students interested in community organizing and social justice advocacy.
