The Hudson School is pleased to announce that on Thursday, November 12, 2015, from 6:00 – 8:00 pm we will be holding an event to raise funds to support our youth diversity leadership program.

 

We are also happy to announce that the Mason Civic League, a local community organization, will be matching all ticket purchases and donations 1:1 up to a total of $5,000.  They are also supporting the event by hosting it at the home of Beth and Richard Mason, who are generously donating the evening’s catering and location.

 

The event is also sponsored by Austin & Co., BCB Community Bank and Connect One Bank.

 

The immediate goal of the fundraiser is to fund the attendance of students and teachers at the NAIS Student Diversity Leadership Conference that is held in conjunction with the People of Color Conference in Tampa in December.

 

This conference is a life-changing experience for the students selected to attend. Participating will help them to develop effective cross-cultural communications skill and strategies for social justice, to network with other students and to learn to build community around multiracial and multicultural issues.  This year’s conference theme is “Learning to Listen and Listening to Learn:  The Art of Dialogue and The Science of Living Justly.”

 

The mission for the People of Color Conference is to equip educators at every level with knowledge, skills and experiences to improve and enhance the interracial, inter-ethnic and intercultural climate in their schools and support the students in their efforts.

 

As a result of attending these conferences, student and faculty participants will take leadership roles within the school and our community to promote understanding and a supportive climate of diversity.

 

The Hudson School, a small, independent school for grades 5-12 accredited by Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools, was founded in 1978 by Suellen Newman. A community of scholars, it offers academically motivated and creative children a rigorous and broad college-preparatory curriculum with strong emphasis on foreign language, the arts and community service.
