STUDENT VOICES (Open to all) SoCal POCIS invites all independent school parents, high school students, faculty, staff, and administrators.
Participants will hear from a panel of high school students as they share their SDLC learning and experiences, in addition to what they need from the adults in their independent school community. After the panel, high school students may participate in the Student Stay Woke workshop while the adults will move into breakout rooms to continue the important conversation started by the students.
STUDENT STAY WOKE (High School Students only) Student Stay Woke serves as a space for students from independent schools to engage one another in meaningful conversations about political and social issues as they relate to their experiences at school. Each year, Student Stay Woke hosts three events, inviting students from schools in and around Los Angeles to participate in workshops, think-tanks, and activities that better equip them to address inequities and marginalization in their communities. The SSW planning committee is composed of a diverse group of young change-makers, all passionate about working together to transform the culture of their schools while equipping their peers to do the same.
