Topics covered in these youth-focused presentations include:

  • The Children's March in Birmingham (1963) – Using a video produced by Teaching Tolerance to highlight the important role played by youth in bringing about change in one of the most violent and segregated cities in America.

  • “What Is Your Life's Blueprint” - Using a speech by Dr. King to a group of of Junior High students to inspire youth to outline a blueprint for their life and encourage them to reach their highest potential.

  • We presented a Nonviolence training on Zoom in March and April. If you would like to hear about the next training, please email us. Thanks.

  •  Once a year, we do an intense youth training in Dr. Martin Luther King's Nonviolence, for ages 14-19. Those who complete the training become certified as youth nonviolence trainers, and may join our training team. We hope to do this training in person once it's safe to do so.
