Our Services:

Jackson 2000 Dialogue Circles

Jackson 2000's signature service to the community are the Dialogue Circles that we offer in a number of different contexts. Dialogue Circles are structured, facilitated discussions among diverse groups of individuals in a comfortable, safe setting. 

The goal is to open up about issues -- both sensitive issues and personal experiences -- to better understand one another. The result is frequently new friendships and relationships that can continue beyond the Circle into the community as a whole.




Youth Dialogue Circles

          

Alumni of the Youth Dialogue Circles sessions held between Jim Hill High School and North West Rankin joined together in Jim Hill’s homecoming day parade on Friday, October 5, 2012 to march together for understanding and racial diversity, despite being rivals in the game held later that night.

The students from the two schools had participated in a dialogue circle earlier in the year that created lasting memories and friendships, encouraging the students and school educators to continue with the program. They are scheduled to have more group sessions in 2013, preceded by a joint community service project with Habitat for Humanity in November. The success of this pilot youth program has encouraged Jackson 2000, with the help of motivated teachers and school administrations, to expand into other local high schools. 

Interested teachers or administrators can contact Dominic DeLeo, Dialogue Circle committee coordinator by email at deleo.dominic@gmail.com to discuss setting up a program at their school.
