The High Point YWCA partners with the City of High Point Human Relations Department to bring you Front Porch Conversations. Launched September 2007, this program is a series of panel discussions on various topics held on 3rd Thursdays at 12:00 noon at our local YWCA.  The purpose of the program is to help keep the public informed about racial and social justice issues, to build multicultural & diversity literacy, highlight resources, and propose solutions.


Diversity Drama  For Diversity Drama Brochure
The innovative and high impact Diversity Drama training model incorporates live, interactive drama into cultural diversity programs to promote awareness and intercultural competency. Diversity Drama offers a powerful extension of traditional diversity programs by presenting high impact, real-life situations that depict cultural misunderstanding and miscommunication. A series of short intercultural scenarios are acted out by specially trained volunteer actors with the goal of stimulating discussion. Audience members witness, respond to, and discuss ideas and reactions to the scene through facilitated discussion about cultural knowledge, social attitudes, beliefs, and communication skills that impact intercultural understanding and service in a diverse society. After each scenario, audience members ask questions of the actors who remain in character and explore together better ways to address cultural barriers, conflicts and misunderstanding.  

In 2012 Dr. Charlotte Hamlin, of Guilford College,  transferred responsibility and coordination of Diversity Drama training to the YWCA of High Point for community programs and Train-the-Trainer workshops.
