Cultural Leadership plans information nights

Cultural Leadership, a yearlong, educational leadership program that teaches high school students to be social justice activists and change agents, will hold information sessions on four days in October. 

The program selects a group of high school sophomores and juniors to take part in a year of programs — including three weekend retreats, monthly meetings and a three-week summer trip — to learn about issues such as racism, anti-Semitism, poverty and oppression. While the program teaches about these issues through the Jewish and African-American lens, it is open to students of all backgrounds who wish to learn about activism and make a difference in the world. 

Information sessions will be held on Oct. 1 at the St. Louis County Library – Natural Bridge Branch, 7606 Natural Bridge Road; Oct. 3 at Metro High School, 4015 McPherson Avenue; Oct. 9 at Central Reform Congregation, 5020 Waterman Boulevard in St. Louis; and Oct. 16 at B’nai Amoona, 324 South Mason Road.
