Walk with a Purpose

Walk with a Purpose was created out of the need to address social inequities that exist in our world today. The overarching goal of the program is to develop a larger awareness of diversity in all its forms and to introduce the cycle of oppression as a way to think about how oppression can affect us all. 2018's keynote speaker was Jenny Yang (http://jennyyang.tv/).
Every year, LWHS sends a group of students to the NAIS Student Diversity Leadership Conference (SDLC) and the White Privilege Conference (WPC). Upon returning from these conferences, students are required to spend the following year designing the Walk with a Purpose Program. Student leaders met regularly for over 8 months to research and write curriculum on intersectionality and bringing your whole self. Other juniors and seniors either designed a workshop for 9th and 10th graders or were placed in faculty and staff led workshops based on their preferences.
