JEDI Student Leadership Workshops

Latinx students
The Unity Center provides workshops for student leaders and organizations. We can also design custom workshops, if needed.

Workshops Offered 

As part of the Unity Center’s mission for belonging and equity, different center’s may ask us to come in and support their students to learn about identity. For that reason, we created a list of workshops we can offer to students to discuss identity.

Understanding one's own identity and others (1.5 hours)

In these interactive activities, students will learn about different identities and reflect on how their identities affect their lives and the lives of their peers. Students will get to know each other and reflect on their multiple histories and identities.
