The SEED Project

Print Friendly

The SEED Project (Seeking Educational Equity and Diversity) is a multifaceted diversity program that helps participants reflect on their own and others’ experiences while also reviewing current theory on such topics as ethnicity, race, gender, sexual identity and socioeconomic status. NNM has successfully run these workshops for the past seven years. Through insightful and provocative discussions and activities, led by trained facilitators, each parent has the opportunity to open hearts and minds. Learned awareness of others’ perspectives and cross cultural competency in matters of equity and justice empower us to become more effective role models for our children.

SEED members build a relationship of trust though monthly meetings, which encourages the sharing of our own stories while listening respectfully to those of others. Group size is limited to 20. Meetings are either from 8:45-11:45 am or  from 5:30-8:30 pm, depending on interest. Participants must be able to attend most, if not all, of the 9 meetings during the school year.

If you would like more information or to join a group, please contact Diversity Director Lauren Collins at diversity@nnms.org or SEED Parent Facilitator Tina Sullins at tsullins@mindspring.com.

“Though I do not believe that a plant will spring up where no seed has been, I have great faith in a seed. Convince me that you have a seed…and I am prepared to expect wonders.” Henry David Thoreau
