The Network for Social Justice’s youth engagement work seeks to broaden acceptance for diversity and equity in Winchester. We accomplish our work by building a strong base of students and adults in an effort to generate a culture change towards inclusion in schools and the town as a whole.
NFSJ Internship Program
Since launching in Summer of 2020, our intern program has filled over 70 slots for high school students interested in community organizing and social justice advocacy. NFSJ interns participate in planning one of our NFSJ signature festivals and engage in social justice learning through workshops and projects that connect them to the arts, history, and policy.
