Looking to incorporate identity work and social justice lessons into your work with students? This session will provide participants with an example of how a student-led Social Justice Club supports the development and implementation of advisory lessons in the ISK Middle School. Alexa and Drew will also share about their ‘Proud To Be Me Day’ – an initiative that was proposed by students 4 years ago to support identity development, awareness, and acceptance. Students plan and lead workshops related to race, neurodiversity, gender, sexuality, body image, and more.
Alexa Schmid and Drew Gregor have been working together at the International School of Kenya (ISK) as the Middle School Administration Team for the past 3+ years. They are a student-centered team focused on amplifying student voice and providing authentic leadership opportunities for empowering students to grow as leaders who can make a difference. They believe in and support student-driven social justice and identity work.
