[b]Anytown Arizona[/b] Anytown Arizona programs guide participants through facilitated dialogue and interactive workshops designed to provoke thought and inspire change. Through this experience, participants not only address their interactions with others, but also investigate their own identity and discuss issues that can be difficult to approach in everyday life. By raising the level of consciousness about the sense of otherness and distrust, Anytown Arizona programs help prevent the negative spiral of alienation, prejudice and hatred. Through our various youth development and leadership programs, we have served over 30,000 Arizona youth since 1957. Through our annual events, we have raised the awareness of over 10,000 adults, and through our diversity training and similar programs, we have served over 100 organizations in the Phoenix metropolitan area. Anytown Arizona strives to meet this need by providing a structure and venue in which participants can recognize, investigate, and tackle the social issues they face daily. Our programs offer a safe space and a series of workshops based in experiential learning with the objective of supporting leaders who create change in their schools, organizations, and communities.
