Posted on 11/18/2021
Photo of 2021-22 Human Rights Student Leadership Council The Prince William County Human Rights Commission, in partnership with Prince William County Public Schools (PWCS), has chosen the 2021-22 Human Rights Student Leadership Council (HRSLC). Thirty-five PWCS high school students have been selected to serve on the Council, including one PWCS student who was selected as a Human Rights Student Leadership Council ambassador. Ambassadors are former student members of the HRSLC who support the incoming members throughout the school year.

The HRSLC is offered to current high school sophomores, juniors, and seniors in public, private, and home school communities within Prince William County. The council helps develop young leaders and promotes dialogue on diversity, understanding, and an appreciation of the differences among students. Students on the council learn about human and civil rights laws and become informed about how to protect and assert their rights, with a goal toward filling leadership roles in the future and helping to prepare the next generation of prospective employees, tenants, and consumers.
