Racial Justice Course for Teens

Racial Justice Course for Teens

The Episcopal Church has developed a Christian formation program specifically for youth called Dismantling Racism: A Youth Curriculum. Mary Beth Abplanalp is now certified to teach this 6-session curriculum designed to help middle and high school youth and their parents have conversations about race, become allies, and build relationships to address systemic racism in their context. The goal is to help youth connect their faith with racial healing in our communities.

St. James’s will offer this program in the 2021-2022 school year. Students must be accompanied by at least one parent.  Please note the program builds on previous sessions so if you miss a session, you’ll need to discontinue the course and participate again the next time it is offered, which we hope is at least once annually. For more information, contact Mary Beth Abplanalp, Director of Youth Ministry, at [email protected] or 703-470-6832.
