Over the course of the school year, students will have the opportunity to opt-in to a series of workshops by the Hiatt Center that will be offered once a month on Mondays (from 8-9 am). Through these workshops, students will experience personal skill development and a deeper understanding of leadership, civic engagement, and social justice issues. Individuals may attend a single workshop that interests them or attend the entire series. Participation in 6 or more workshops will award students with a Hiatt Leadership Institute certificate of completion awarded at a Middle School Meeting in June. Students will be notified of upcoming workshops in weekly Middle School Meetings. They will receive an email from the Hiatt Center with a registration link to sign up for the workshop.
