Miller Early Childhood Initiative
The Miller Early Childhood Initiative provides anti-bias training and resources for the early childhood community. The goal of the Initiative is to assist caregivers, educators, and families in creating and sustaining bias-free early childhood programs and homes that encourage children to appreciate diversity at an age when the seeds of prejudice can begin to take root.
College Campus Programming
The ADL Santa Barbara office offers a variety of programs for college campuses customized to the specific needs of the institution. Many of the programs focus on diversity education and are based on our A WORLD OF DIFFERENCE® Institute offerings.
Glass Leadership Institute
The Glass Leadership Institute is ADL's emerging leadership program- identifying, training and encouraging young Jewish leaders to become involved with ADL throughout their lives. Participants are selected based on their potential leadership qualities and their sincere interest in the program.
Law Enforcement Trainings
The Santa Barbara region provides trainings to law enforcement agencies and personnel in the areas of extremism and hate groups and the nature and understanding of hate crimes. Our civil rights counsel and investigative researcher in Los Angeles provide the trainings.
National Youth Leadership Mission
This bi-annual three-day trip brings delegations of up to 10 students from our region together with students from across the country to visit the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum in Washington, D.C. Students learn leadership skills while discussing the universal lessons of the Holocaust, and exploring ways to combat bigotry and bias in their daily lives. Students undergo an intensive and competitive interview process in order to qualify for the program.
No Place for Hate®
The No Place for Hate® Campaign provides educators and students with the resources to ensure that anti-bias and diversity education are an integral part of the school curriculum. No Place for Hate® helps create and sustain inclusive school environments where all students feel valued and have the opportunity to succeed by promoting respect for individual difference while challenging bigotry and prejudice.
