    Anytown Leadership Camp is a youth leadership program that celebrates diversity and reduces bias, bigotry, and prejudice by bringing young people of all races, cultures, religions, and backgrounds together for a challenging week of learning, sharing and change. Anytown Leadership Camp participants engage in interactive dialogue within diverse community groups throughout the week in order to address the feelings that can often initiate the negative spiral of prejudice and hatred—a sense of distrust and misunderstanding. Anytown helps bring awareness to these issues, and once this awareness has been achieved, participants are then enabled and empowered to become leaders within their schools and communities.  Youth participants that graduate from the Anytown Leadership Program will receive a certificate for 50 hours of leadership training/service.
