experiential education

OUDC’s program begins in January of a student’s junior year of high school.  During the first six months of the program, students participate in workshops, meetings, lectures and activities, learning about the religions, histories, and cultures of African Americans and Jews.  They build the trust necessary for true understanding through honest introspection and interaction, experiential learning and time in each others’ homes, most notably for Passover seders and Easter.  This part of the program is based on the Sankofa/Never Forget principle: without a firm grounding in the past, we cannot move forward.
