VA students take steps toward extinguising intolerance in
their community

Study Circles Group

The Van Antwerp Study Circles Group participated in the Annual STOP (Students Together Opposing Prejudice) conference at Siena College, Friday, Jan. 15. The event brought together more than 200 students from 20 Middle Schools and High Schools in the Capital Region.

Working in small groups, students participated in activities, workshops, discussions and action planning around issues of prejudice, tolerance and respect.

The VA Study Circles Group is now using what they learned to discover the role they will play in the effort to extinguish intolerance, bullying, labeling and discrimination in their community, while brainstorming ways to share what they've learned.
