Where have we presented?
You can find us talking to a number of organizations, schools, universities, churches and businesses.
Colorado Sikhs has presented at many of the institutions listed below and look forward to partnering with you to support many more in the future.
We partner with the Community Relations Service of the Department of Justice to provide education to various law enforcement agencies.
This is an important service since many times law enforcement members are the first responders.
Past events have included the TSA, the FBI, Federal Executive Board, Federal Bureau of Prisons and various local Colorado State law enforcement (e.g. Commerce City PD).
Universities and Colleges
We have also presented at various colleges and universities. Our education programs can be tailored for your students at both the undergraduate and graduate levels. We present to various classes including:
- World History
- Eastern History
- World Religions
- Eastern Religions
- Comparative Religions
Educators and administrative staff need to be informed about the issues that students of other cultures and religions face in the learning environment. Whether it is K-12 student or the entire family, we provide educators with the knowledge they need to understand Sikhism. We also provide evidence based techniques to communicate and work with diverse communities.
Teachers often do not have ready access to materials or training on how to teach the Eastern religions. As a result, Sikhism receives very little attention in most middle and high schools. Often, the information that does exist is incomplete or incorrect.
We teach teachers how to teach Sikhism. Our Sikhism 101 course consists of an on-site presentation that follows with a conversation on lesson planning. Both new and veteran teachers can easily configure and tailor their own course based on the materials we provide.
This program is offered in conjunction with our partners. Please contact us for additional information.
