Event description

Description

Youth Healers Stand Up! along with partners at Juvenile Law Center, Mental Health Partnerships, Youth Art & Self Empowerment Project, The Young Adult Leadership Committee @ OHS, Einstein PRIDE Program, and Valley Youth House PRIDE Task Force, invites community members, neighbors, social service and youth workers, philanthropists, policy makers, and anyone interested in strengthening community for this city's young people to our annual HEAL THE FUTURE CONFERENCE.

Join the Healers and youth leaders from around the city in conversation around the latest in youth movement building and social change. Heal the Future 2019 will consist of a series of interactive discussions and strategy sessions facilitated and developed entirely by local young leaders with lived experience of the justice issues they are tackling, ranging from housing, to mass incarceration, and educational equity. Youth art, design, and planning will also be exhibited to display the creativity put to work throughout the summer.

Participants will be invited into a space where young people are seen as dynamic young innovators and necessary partners in social change, and will be encouraged to act in support of the youth in their lives as community allies.

NOTE TO ADULT ATTENDEES: The Healers prioritize and encourage the voices of young people in this space because so often their voices are quieted. This is called adultism. We encourage your thoughtful participation in this space as an equal--the knowledge youth hold is valued equally to yours.

Confirmed Workshops:

-Modeling Vulnerability in Adult-Youth Partnerships

-Youth Mental Health & Peer Support Deep Dive

-Youthwork Troubleshooting Workshop

-Rewriting the Story on Youth--Reducing Ageist Stigma

Also, don't miss our raffles, opportunities for live art making, and our listening booth!
