Since our inception in 1997, the Power Over Prejudice (POP) programs have coached over 10,000 middle school students and over 800 school counselors on the importance of embracing diversity in their schools and communities.
Each year, student leaders from public, private and religious schools across Atlanta, Georgia and the surrounding counties are selected to serve as POP Ambassadors in representation of their school. Student representative, from the different schools, attend the annual POP Summit and have an opportunity to explore together.
Our Power Over Prejudice Ambassadors gain a higher level of understanding about why Diversity is important and can empower other students to address challenges with bullying, discrimination, prejudice, and intolerance. As a result, schools develop events and activities during the school year that celebrate differences, encourage respect, and promote inclusion.
