Anne Frank Center Pilots Peer Guide Training Program Encouraging Youth Empowerment (The Jewish Voice)

The Anne Frank Center for Mutual Respect (AFC), in partnership with the Holocaust & Genocide Studies program at Stockton University, New Jersey, will launch its pilot Peer Guide Training Program through the exhibit “Anne Frank: A History for Today” at three high schools in Atlantic and Cape May counties this spring, following a public exhibition February 9-22 at Stockton University.

Anne Frank wrote, “Even if people are still very young, they shouldn’t be prevented from saying what they think.”

Every day, young voices call out prejudice and demand a call to action. Through peer education, the AFC teaches college and high school students how to share the story and legacy of Anne Frank with other young people, recognizing that their lives are part of a continuing human story, and empowering them to become ambassadors of change.
