Multicultural Student Leadership Program

IRC's Diversity Workshops build a foundation of respect for diversity and multicultural team-building skills.

IRC's Conflict Prevention Workshops develop pro-active skills and strategies to "de-fuse" tensions before they develop into major confrontations. 

IRCs Multicultural Student Leadership Program has been implemented for students attending public schools in demographically changing neighborhoods in New York City (Abraham Lincoln High School, Benjamin Cardoza High School, Fiorello LaGuardia High School, Fort Hamilton High School, James Monroe High School, Seward Park High School, IS 220, IS 22, JHS 189).  This program has also been implemented regionally at colleges and universities in New York, Connecticut, Massachusetts and Rhode Island (City University of New York (17 campuses), Baruch College, College of Staten Island, LaGuardia Community College, University of Connecticut, Connecticut College, Wesleyan University, Yale University, Smith College, Williams College, University of Rhode Island).

I had the opportunity to relate to people of different cultures and backgrounds and see the world from their perspective.” Kingsborough Community College

From the bumper sticker activity, I learned things that I never knew before.” Miss Porter's School

The role-playing was very powerful as was the display of signs. I had my eyes opened.” Williams College

The role play was really helpful because we dealt with real issues.” Wesleyan University

Role plays portrayed real situations, not made-up.” Baruch College

The role plays were most helpful because we shared personal experiences, but these experiences took on universal meaning because they made me realize how all emotions are universal.” Williams College

Role-playing was helpful because it really makes you think how others are seeing the same situation in different ways.” Williams College

All aspects reinforced the idea that one must look inward as well as outside. We need to step outside of ourselves and look at things from a different perspective.” Connecticut College

An opportunity to interact with people I might have never met were it not for this event.” Wesleyan University
