SOCIAL JUSTICE WORKSHOP: Cabrini High School student Jillian Wohlgemuth has been selected to attend the Anti-defamation League’s Grosfeld Family National Youth Leadership Mission Workshop in Washington, D.C., in October.
The intensive study workshop will be held Oct. 26-29 in the National Holocaust Memorial Museum. The workshop is a leadership training program designed to create effective leaders by teaching youths about social justice issues and to develop and refine their leadership skills.
The process begins with anti-bias training for peer leaders and program coordinators facilitated by ADL training specialists. She and the other delegates will explore modern and historical examples of hate, discrimination and genocide. The workshop will teach delegates lessons on diversity and how to promote respect and tolerance in their schools and communities.
Wohlgemuth’s nomination stems from Cabrini’s No Place for Hate Club, where she is a three-year member. Her selection was based on a three-step process that included nomination by Nadine Pizer, moderator of Cabrini’s No Place for Hate club, an original essay and a personal interview. She will be part of the Donald R. Mintz New Orleans office delegation of the South Central Region of the ADL.
