SJLI provides two days of subject-specific workshops to explore highly integrated themes of oppression for deep analysis and skill-building. Each section involves activities and debriefs designed for whole-group, team, individual, affinity, school, and cross-school groupings. All activities are experiential (no lectures!) and tailored to expose injustices that are stereotypical, unique, stark, and subtle. Young people will be challenged to look at their communities with a critical lens, affirm participants’ experiences, explore new visions for justice and freedom, cultivate an expanded regional community, and create tangible action-plans to make justice a reality in their schools. Additionally, we include time for participants to rest and rejuvenate, develop a larger network of friends, and energy to begin or continue their journeys as leaders at their school.

St. Paul’s School is located in Concord, NH. Specific location and directions will be sent out within one-week of the Institute.  Attendance is mandatory for the entire Institute.

                                        Our Curriculum Framework:


Retreat Goal


Race, class, gender and sexual orientation interconnect to shape our lives and experiences.


Experiencing racism, sexism, classism and heterosexism brings up pain and anger, and we need to name and feel that in order to heal. We also can find joy in claiming and reclaiming our marginalized identities and stories, and fighting for justice.


Racism, classism, sexism and heterosexism are systems that have been created — historically and presently — partly by our perceptions and partly by the government, laws and media.


The ongoing result of social justice education must be action. We can and must educate and organize in our communities these systems.  There are specific methods of effective change that we can learn.
