Misericordia University to host Diversity Student Leadership Camp June 15-21


The Daily Item

— DALLAS — The Office of Multicultural Education at Misericordia University is hosting the 2014 Diversity Student Leadership Camp from June 15-21 on campus for high school students entering 10th, 11th and 12th grades. This year’s camp will focus on social and global concerns regarding the Earth, immigration, non-violence, anti-racism and women.

Camp sessions will help students define the role of the leader in a particular community, organization, or situation, and analyze their personal values and how those values impact their leadership in their schools and communities. The camps will also increase awareness of community organizations and institutions that assist the community.

Throughout the week, the high school students will experience life on a university campus and stay in the Misericordia University residence halls.

On the last day of the camp, students will take part in service work to culminate their development as service leaders. Students will be able to interact with the Wilkes-Barre community by participating in the NAACP Annual Picnic on June 21 in Kirby Park, where they will help set up, serve meals, work with the games and activities, and assist with clean up. For more information about the 2014 Diversity Student Leadership Camp at Misericordia University, contact your high school’s guidance counselor or call Brenda Nowalis at (570) 674-1483.
