For campers entering grades 6-9

Social Justice Day Camp

July 9-13, 2018

Do you want to make the world a better place? Build your personal toolbox of skillsets so you can responsibly engage with the world around us. Students interested in social justice, dialogue for understanding, and community building will be asked to examine their own identity and their future role as global citizens.  Explore how you can make a difference in ongoing causes of anti-human trafficking, civil rights, homelessness, and refugee and immigration services.  Get hands-on as you design an advocacy project for your chosen cause.  This is a day camp for students entering 6-8 grades.

 

Director Tracy Rogers-Tryba, M.S.Ed, is an Outreach & Engagement Specialist at Northern Illinois University’s Center for P-20 Engagement.  With ten+ years of experience at NIU, Tracy’s proficiency in strategic visioning, dialogue facilitation, and project management has contributed to local and regional efforts to enhance social services in times of shrinking resources.  While a primary interest is in the use of dialogue as a means of developing greater civic capacity, Tracy is also invested in developing high thinking skillsets among youth and adults.
