ADL Peer Training Program

 The Anti-Defamation League Peer Training Program

The Anti-Defamation League (ADL) A WORLD OF DIFFERENCE Institute Peer Training program is an opportunity for middle- and high-school students to "facilitate and sustain positive social change in their schools." Students from Normandin Middle School and Roosevelt Middle School, during the fall of 2018, were trained to lead "developmentally appropriate activities and discussions with their peers  on bias-related issues pertaining to race, ethnicity, culture and other aspects of human diversity." The goals of this program are to develop leadership and conflict management skills within students, to open up conversations to learn about the impact of bias, stereotyping, discrimination, and harassment, and to improve the climate and culture of schools by fostering positive peer influence and promoting an inclusive school environment.  Peer training sessions are being launched in classrooms in both Normandin and Roosevelt Middle School in the spring of 2019.
