Event Details

On Friday, March 27th from 5:30-9:00pm at Mitchell Park Community Center the City of Palo Alto will host a youth forum titled, “In This Together: A Place to Share, A Place to Support, A Place to Heal.”  During this forum, youth will have the opportunity to participate in a series of small discussions with each other, led by teen-selected adult facilitators, about topics that teens have identified as important to them and critical to their well-being.  Topics include: Social Academic Pressure; Dealing with Stress; Defeating Stigma; Inclusion, Acceptance & Friendship; Dealing with Depression; and Grieving, Coping and Dealing with Loss. The goal of the dialogue circles are to encourage youth to have open, honest dialogue in a safe environment with trusted adult facilitators so that both can come to a common understanding of what the issues are. 

While youth are in their dialogue circles, adults will be invited to participate in an Adult Support Workshop, a workshop designed to provide support and guidance for parents, educators, advocates, and allies for teens in our community impacted and effected by the issues teens face.  At the conclusion of both the workshop and dialogue circles, all attendees will come back for reporting out and Closing Remarks, including a launch of “Everyone Matters Day” by Councilmember Burt. 

The last hour will be an “Empathy Hour” with food, drinks, selfie booth, art activities, and the opportunity for continued conversations with a focus on relationship building and friendship.  We encourage all youth, parents, educators and teen advocates to attend.  For more information, contact Lacee Kortsen at 650-463-4910 or lacee.kortsen@cityofpaloalto.org.  We are all in this together!
