    A WORLD OF DIFFERENCE® Peer Training Program

    Parent Info Night

    Thursday, October 26


    Essex High School Library


    Westford School has partnered with the Anti-Defamation League (ADL) to train select 7th and 8th grade students as peer leaders in the A World of Difference Program.  


    The A WORLD OF DIFFERENCE® Institute Peer Training Program recognizes that attitudes and beliefs affect actions, and that each of us can have an impact on others, and ultimately, on the world in which we live.  We are training students to recognize bias and the harm it inflicts on individuals and society; build understanding of the value and benefits of diversity; improve intergroup relations; and confront all forms of bigotry.


    We invite you to Parent Night on Thursday, October 26 at 6:30PM in the Essex High School Library.  All parents are invited and welcome to attend.  We are especially hopeful that all families with 5th and 6th grade students will attend.  


    This presentation, with students led activities, will provide parents with the opportunity to:

    •      Explore the ways in which A WORLD OF DIFFERENCE Institute Peer Training Program empowers young people through peer-to-peer education to facilitate positive social change in our school community.


    •      Identify strategies for parents to support their children’s efforts to actively promote an inclusive school community in which all individuals are respected and valued.
