Brookline High School Program in Social Justice Leadership
The BHS Program in Social Justice Leadership trains a youth corps of social justice advocates and aims to nurture life-long leaders for social transformation. During the one year program, students grapple with the values of social justice, identify global and local issues that they wish to devote themselves to, and learn how to organize for social change. The program emphasizes collective rather than individual responses to injustice, and transformative rather than temporary relief from social problems.
Participants attend seminars, work as interns, interact with speakers and trainers and travel to the front lines of social justice work. Interested sophmores and juniors must apply during the winter for the following year.
