New Summer Leadership Activist Program for Students The Chico Peace and Justice Center's Leadership Activist Program (LAP) will take place this summer within the cities of Chico and Oroville, California. The program will span six days and include 25+ hours of youth-focused social justice and nonviolent communication education, designed to develop future activist leaders. LAP will train high school to recognize and address inequities within their community using social justice knowledge and nonviolent communication skills. Program participants will assist with carrying out institutional changes to develop more fair policies within their local schools and government. Venues and curriculum will be overseen by representatives of CPJC, local activist groups, local schools, and other local nonprofit organizations as well. Participants will receive certificates upon successful completion. Interested high school students must complete and submit the program's online application below by Friday, June 18, 2018.
