For over 15 years, the Multicultural Network has fostered strong relationships with both the Winchester Public School system and local community organizations through our Schools & Youth Committee, formerly known as the School Impact Committee.
We highly value the ongoing and increasing efforts of the schools and civic organizations to promote a climate in our schools and town in which all children and staff feel safe, respected and valued.
We act through curriculum initiatives, professional development, civic engagement, and community projects.
The Network’s Schools & Youth Committee meets regularly with the Assistant Superintendent of Schools as well as community groups to ensure we are working together to achieve common goals for Winchester youth.
1. Maintain a collaborative relationship with the School Administration to ensure staffing and training reflect and support diversity goals.
2. Engage with local organizations serving youth, including parent teacher organizations, WFEE, Youth Alliance and town sports associations, to ensure their programming and policies are inclusive.
3. Provide leadership opportunities for youth, targeting middle to high school age groups, so they can develop knowledge and skills to become advocates for and ambassadors of inclusion, within and beyond Winchester.
