§  Participants have the opportunity to hear the perspectives of their classmates and teachers.  They also have the opportunity to be heard.

§  All participants contribute to assessment of the school environment and the development of realistic action steps that can be taken to address identified needs.

§  Student panelists learn valuable skills in essay writing and presentation.

§  Student and adult facilitators are trained by professional ADL facilitators to guide students in the exploration of diversity issues.
