GREAT upcoming opportunities outside the Council

1. Dallas Holocaust Museum Program

Date: Tuesday, August 5  - Wednesday, August 6

On August 4 and 5, the Dallas Holocaust Museum will be holding its annual Holocaust and Human Rights Educator Conference. This two-day event provides educators at secondary schools with the necessary information to teach on the Holocaust and various Human Rights topics.

2. Tufts Global Leadership program for high schools

Tufts’ Inquiry Program for high schools across the United States is looking for global studies enrichment activities for their students.

Tufts’ undergrads put together a year-long study program for high schools on a specific hot topic (2014 is Iraq, recent topics were DRC, nuclear non-proliferation, pandemics and global health; next year will be Russia), culminating in a 3-day crisis simulation exercise hosted by Tufts in Medford each April. Tufts can’t fund each school’s participation, but has been able to help some schools identify funds for travel.

If you know of a school that might be interested in learning more, they can contact Heather Barry, deputy director of Tufts’ Institute for Global Leadership
