Multicultural Services Center Conferences

We encourage students to participate in organized activities which enhance their learning experience and equip them with skills for their future.  The benefits for students attending conferences are to build community network,  meet leaders within the community and abroad and learn about resources available and how to access them.  The MSC sponsors students to attend Leadership Conferences throughout the school year.

The Kitsap County Board of Commissioners formed the Kitsap County Council for Human Rights in 1989 following a cross-burning incident. The purpose and establishment of the Council was affirmed in County Resolution No. 451-1994. The Council's vision is that Kitsap County shall be a caring, supportive, and safe community which values each individual, celebrates individual differences, and recognizes the importance of each person's contribution to the community.
