Can You Help - Mix It Up Day

Volunteers are needed to help plan and implement Stargate's first "Mix It Up Day," set for Oct. 27. 

What is "Mix it Up"?

Mix It Up at Lunch Day encourages students to identify, question and cross social boundaries. It is part a national campaign launched more than a decade ago by Teaching Tolerance. 

What's Planned for the Event?

In our Stargate school surveys, students have identified the cafeteria as the place where divisions are most clearly drawn. So on one day - October 27 this school year - we will ask students to move out of their comfort zones and connect with someone new over lunch. It’s a simple act with profound implications. 

How Do I Help?

To volunteer for the event, or for more information, contact Lauren Cleary or Lyndsey Collins.

Where Can I Find More Information About the Program?

Studies have shown that interactions across group lines can help reduce prejudice. When students interact with those who are different from them, biases and misperceptions can fall away.Click here for more information,
