PAS Richmond – Volunteer Registration

Home 9 Take Action 9 Volunteer 9 PAS Richmond – Volunteer Registration

Thank you for your interest in volunteering for the Richmond Prejudice Awareness Summit, scheduled for October 20, 2023! 

This program has been held in Virginia since 2001, and is designed to bring over 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.

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 community and student 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 sessions on October 20 from 7:45 AM – 2:45 PM at VCU’s main campus. Lunch will be provided. Facilitators are also required to attend a mandatory Facilitator Training on Tuesday, October 10, 2023 at the Fairfield Area Library. Training will be discussion-based and participatory. An optional dinner will be provided starting at 5:15 PM that evening, and training will start promptly at 5:45 PM and go until 8:45 PM.

Please complete the application  by September 29. If you are selected, you will receive an email with directions to our training site and information about parking.

If you have any questions, please contact VCIC’s Vice President of Programs Jessica Hawthorne at [email protected]

We look forward to the chance to work with you!
