The Carole Landis Foundation has given a grant to support the Anti-Defamation League’s No Place For Hate® program at Philadelphia’s John W. Hallahan Catholic Girls' High School.
The Foundation is sponsoring the Peer Training portion of the program for the academic year of 2019/20.
Peer Training is a pivotal component of anti-bias and bullying-prevention No Place For Hate® program. Students chosen for the program are taught how to become leaders and agents of change in their schools and communities by facilitating difficult conversations about bias, discrimination and bullying with their peers.
This year, 26 10th and 11th grade students and two teachers will participate in three full days of Peer Training at Hallahan.
The Carole Landis Foundation has supported several ADL programs in recent years, including the Youth Leadership Conference: “Exploring Diversity. Challenging Hate.” (2018), No Place for Hate® Plus at Cherry Hill High School West in New Jersey (2016-17) and the Annual Walk Against Hate (2015-2019).
