Montgomery Middle School STEAM Magnet has been developing their mission of “Designing a Better World Through Community-Centered, Project Based Learning.” To reach this goal, 7th and 8th grade students completed an intense 3 Day Peer Leadership Training with the Anti-Defamation League over the summer. This peer leadership opportunity provided students with the skills needed to become peer mentors and engage in supporting fellow students throughout the school year. As it states on ADL’s website, “Peer Leaders learn about social justice issues through comprehensive training designed to address the specific issues they face each day in their schools and communities. Once trained, they work together over the course of the school year to plan and implement projects of their own choosing that they believe will promote a more respectful and inclusive school community.”
