THE STORY:

DISCOVERY CENTER INC wrote -

Take a step with us and imagine a world without prejudice. Imagine a community that celebrates each other’s differences. The Discovery Center works toward a future that is more fair and equitable, and your generous donations help make it possible!

At The Discovery Center our approach to leadership excellence allows us to deliver our mission of shaping positive attitudes about race and difference. We believe that young people need to be equipped with the knowledge, skills, and abilities necessary to build relationships and work effectively with students from diverse backgrounds. Our programs encourage self-reflection and identity formation, build capacity to demonstrate empathy, and result in a greater appreciation for all kinds of difference. With a balance of small group dialogue, engaging content presentation and interactive activities we foster productive thinking about race and bias while exploring the obstacles of truly experiencing valuing diversity.

Your donation provides programming for more than 3500 CT students and educators each year.

  • Our 3-day Residential Camp Program, partners nearly 1200 students from urban and suburban/rural schools, for an overnight experience focused on diversity, teambuilding, and academic learning.
  • Our school-based workshops allow thousands of students the opportunity to share their experiences with diversity, racism, and other forms of bias while identifying strategies to interrupt mean behavior.
  • The E.D.I.fy program invites educators into a process of transformation and change through guided conversations on how race, class, gender, and other “differences” impact the work of educators in increasingly diverse classrooms.

Take a step and help us increase the number of classrooms in Connecticut where diversity, multiculturalism, and equity are supported so that students can be themselves and do their best.
