ADL's World of Difference Institute

HBT is excited to share that eight members of our Peer Leadership Club were participants in the Anti-defamation League’s program, “A World of Difference Institute®.”  The ADL's A World of Difference® Institute recognizes that attitudes and beliefs affect actions, and that each of us can have an impact on others, and ultimately, on the world in which we live. HBT’s student participants learned to, recognize bias and the harm it inflicts on individuals and society, build understanding of the value and benefits of diversity, improve intergroup relations, confront racism, anti-Semitism and all other forms of bigotry. 

As part of HBT’s No Place For Hate® initiative, these eight students, now armed with a deeper insight and greater understanding, will plan and implement a schoolwide educational lesson exploring peer to peer interactions and their impact on others.

We are proud of the work these students are doing to increase awareness and address social issues to make our school inclusive and respectful for all.
