CBS 21 Highlights How Milton Hershey School Students Inform PA State Police Training on Diversity and Inclusion

CBS21 reporter Samantha York spoke to a Milton Hershey School senior about the integral role she and her classmates play in the training of Pennsylvania State Police cadets through the Minority Youth Forum.

In partnership with the state police, students in the school’s Law, Public Safety, and Security career pathway have had open conversations with cadets about race, equality, and social justice with the goal of increasing transparency and breaking down cultural barriers between police and minority communities. MHS students have been participating in the forums since 2017 and are encouraged to share their values, opinions, beliefs, and cultural backgrounds to help the cadets expand their perspectives.

Milton Hershey School does not discriminate in admissions or other programs and services on the basis of race, color, national or ethnic origin, ancestry, sex, religious creed or disability. Read important MHS policies on equal opportunity and diversity, equal employment opportunity, and more.
