September 9th and 10th, 2023 at YWCA High Point
STARR: Students Talking About Race + Racism is a two-day program that provides high school students with a safe, welcoming space to share their experiences and ask questions about race and racism without fear of judgment. (Read about the first STARR program.)
What happens at STARR?
This two-day program includes lots of different activities, from small group discussions and individual writing exercises to big group programs. Students learn about the pivotal role Greensboro and High Point played in the civil rights movement of the 50s and 60s, and how longstanding racial injustices affect them and their communities today.
Does STARR cost money?
STARR tuition is $100. However, scholarships (need-based tuition assistance) are available; many students pay nothing to attend. Money is NEVER an obstacle for a student to attend STARR, thanks to our community of visionary donors.
NOTE: Thanks to a generous grant from Foundation for a Healthy High Point, tuition for the September 2023 session of STARR is free for 24 students who live or go to school in High Point. Spots are limited to 24 students, so get your application in as soon as possible.
