EQCA & The Center for Talented Youth
This week Equality California’s San Francisco office had the pleasure of welcoming 15 high school students from across the world. As a part of the Center for Talented Youth’s summer course in Civic Engagement & Contemporary Social Issues, these youth leaders participated in a service learning site visit at EQCA. Staff led students in exercises that helped them to gain a better comprehension of issues surrounding societal norms and values with a focus on gender and sexuality. Students engaged in discussions surrounding the opportunities and privileges that result from these norms and values.
It was really inspiring to have these young people in the office and to hear about their experiences and thoughts about full equality. It was also refreshing to gain new perspectives and to learn about their personal experiences.
