Stamp Conference 2018
Students Taking Action and Making Progress
Date: Friday, October 12th, 2018
Venue: History Colorado Center, Denver, CO
Key Note Speaker: Dr. Bettina Love
The STAMP Conference is a daylong diversity and inclusiveness conference/experience for middle school students designed and facilitated by high school students from across the Denver metro area. STAMP stands for Students Taking Action and Making Progress and the conference equips middle school youth from across the Denver area and beyond with tools to build more inclusive communities in their home schools. What makes this experience so unique is the coming together of diverse students from varied high schools and middle schools, representing public, private, charter and independent school communities. The high school leaders who plan the conference receive leadership and facilitation training and are empowered to design and create every workshop for the conference. In year one, we began with just a dozen high school leaders and in October 2015 we had 60 high school leaders creating, facilitating and leading the STAMP program.
To develop student leaders who are engaged in culturally responsive dialogue, through experiential opportunities to promote leadership, social justice and equity in their communities.
STAMP will serve as our program for student leadership development. Our leadership will model opportunities for emerging, multicultural and transformational leadership with an emphasis on diversity, equity and social justice.
In addition, we are planning to grow as an organization and be recognized as a leader in the inclusiveness, equity and social justice field at the local, statewide and hopefully national levels.
