Thank you for your interest in volunteering for the Richmond Prejudice Awareness Summit, scheduled for October 13, 2021!

This program has been held in  regions in Virginia since 2001, and is designed to bring approximately 100 middle school students from across a geographic area to discuss ways to combat prejudice in their schools. You can find a report from previous programs held in Richmond and Lynchburg here.

Thanks to support from Atlantic Union Bank, this program is offered for free to local schools in Richmond! PAS, which was founded by Jewish Women International, is conducted by the Virginia Center for Inclusive Communities.

While at PAS, groups of 12-15 middle school students experience workshops facilitated by co-facilitator teams made up of two community facilitator-volunteers.  Facilitators come from a variety of backgrounds and professions, all with a shared interest in working with young people to promote inclusion and respect.

As a volunteer, you will be asked to commit to co-leading a small group of students through their virtual sessions on October 13 from 9:30am-2:30pm. There will be scheduled breaks for stretching and for lunch during these times. Facilitators are also required to attend a mandatory Facilitator Orientation on Wednesday, September 29 from 5:30pm – 8:00pm.  A Zoom link will be sent in advance of this session.

Please complete the application by September 13. If you are selected, you will receive the link to attend the training session on September 29.

If you have any questions, please contact VCIC’s Educational Programs Associate Emma Cox by email at ecox@inclusiveVA.org.

We look forward to the chance to work with you!
