NAIS Student Leadership Conference

Six Waynflete Upper Schools students will attend the National Association of Independent Schools’s virtual Student Diversity Leadership Conference (SDLC) from December 1–4.

The four-day event is a multiracial, multicultural gathering of high school student leaders from across the U.S. and abroad. SDLC focuses on self-reflecting, forming allies, and building community. Led by a diverse team of trained adult and peer facilitators, participating students develop cross-cultural communication skills, design effective strategies for social justice practice through dialogue and the arts, and learn the foundations of allyship and networking principles. In addition to large group sessions, SDLC “family groups” and “home groups” allow for dialogue and sharing in smaller units.
