Middle School Student Diversity & Leadership Retreat!

Welcome back to this group of middle students and chaperones who traveled to Olympia, Washington, to attend the annual NWAIS Student Diversity Leadership Retreat
While at the retreat, students were encouraged to join conversations about the change they would like to see in their communities through ideation workshops, affinity groups, and team-building activities.

Our students had a great time building community and relationships with other middle schoolers from Seattle and Salt Lake City, to name a few!

Here’s what students had to say about their experience:
“It was a great experience connecting with other students from different places!!” Franc (8th Grade)

“It was not only fun and an interesting experience. I met amazing people and heard beautiful stories.” Orli (8th Grade)

We are so glad to be able to send our students to conferences and events like these each year, and we look forward to more opportunities for growth! Thank you for making the trip!
