JAMESTOWN, NY– The Robert H. Jackson Center, a non-profit dedicated to promoting liberty under law through the examination of the life and work of Supreme Court Justice Robert H. Jackson and its relevance to current events and issues, will partner with Chautauqua Institution on their Boys’ and Girls’ Club Plus program, a new Youth Activities offering this summer. Robert H. Jackson Center President Susan Moran Murphy made the announcement.
During Chautauqua Institution’s 2018 Week Five, themed “The Ethics of Dissent”, the Robert H. Jackson Center will offer a week of curriculum focused on “leadership” with a justice theme to registered Boys’ and Girls” Club Plus participants. Robert H. Jackson Center will engage each group in age appropriate activities related to leadership and “The Ethics of Dissent.” Monday through Thursday will delve into four topics, one each day, addressing iconic people and/or events, such as Ghandi, Martin Luther King, women’s suffrage, child labor, or the Civil Rights Act. Students will explore issues and how they were addressed, and what was or was not achieved. Robert H. Jackson’s life and work will provide a catalyst for discussion. On Friday, the week will wrap up with an interactive exploration of what makes a leader, what does justice mean, and what part difference and dissent play.
“We are pleased to be able to add to our collaborations with Chautauqua Institution by partnering on this new initiative,” Murphy said. Club Plus program details and registration information can be found at www.chq.org.
