Young Abolitionist Leadership Institute 2023-2024
November 9 @ 3:30 pm - 5:00 pm
Young Abolitionist Leadership Institute has resumed for the 2023-2024 school year, meeting on Thursdays at Albany High School from 3:30pm-5:00pm.
This interdisciplinary learning experience creates a hands-on introduction to careers in a variety of fields, including but not limited to history, the arts, museum education, preservation, archaeology, photography, and horticulture. Through research and project based activities, students learn about the inspiring work of local abolitionists as they collaborate in the creation of professional public presentations showcasing what they have learned at The Leadership Institute. This innovative institute is an opportunity for teens to not simply learn about, but to re-create, a ‘sense’ for the past and its relevance today while becoming agents of change for a more equitable and just society.
