“Empowering Our Communities/Nation By Embracing Diversity”

The Fairmont Project is a social & diversity project where we to layout strategies and solutions that advance racial and social transformation in America. The project’s mission is to invest into the social equity of at-risk youth, and have real & honest conversations about race and culture in a safe and supportive environment.

Today's young people receive little meaningful education about race and its continuous role in our society. Our Diversity Essentials workshop is designed to empower young people to having real and honest conversation about race relations in America.

The Diversity Essentials workshop includes a luncheon, panel discussion, and keynote speaker that will inspire at-risk young to continue to push for excellence.
