YLSC IS A CAREFULLY CURATED SPACE

Communicating and Collaborating Across Lines of Difference

Each year, YLSC brings together hundreds of students from public, private, and charter schools to talk about race. Facilitated by local educators, artists, and historians, our programming offers students the opportunity to critically engage with their peers from different backgrounds and identities. Each YLSC program begins by grounding students in their local history and explores their individual concepts of race and identity.
