Welcome to Project s.t.a.r.t. Leadership!

August 19, 2010

Welcome to Project s.t.a.r.t. Leadership, a student leadership initiative inspired by a small group of students at South High School in Minneapolis who wanted to meet the growing integration at their school with awareness and intention.  s.t.a.r.t. intends to build bridges and student leaders for our multicultural world.

The student founders of s.t.a.r.t.  saw that there were few safe spaces for students to grow in their cultural identity while joining together with students from other cultures to foster dialogue, racial equity and take meaningful action.  s.t.a.r.t. founders wanted to host dialogues about racial justice, read and discuss books and articles that deal constructively with intercultural growth, and serve as equity leaders in the broader community.  They engaged adults, or equity coaches, who could help them in this work.

s.t.a.r.t. is a safe place for student leaders to:

  • grow in your cultural identity;
  • raise awareness of other cultures; and
  • join together with students from different cultures to foster dialogue, racial equity and take action.

Project s.t.a.r.t. Leadership is a student-led antidote to closing the pronounced achievement gap between students of color and white students;  to transform racial tensions into constructive, experiential learning opportunities; and to provide training and support to fellow student leaders who wish to effectively cross cultural barriers.

Make a s.t.a.r.t. today and become a leader for our multicultural world!
