To genuinely close racial disparities that affect youth of color requires youth workers and teachers who work with diverse youth to know how to incorporate cultural competency and racially conscious strategies in their youth work practices. This workshop will do a deep dive into how racism shows up in our country with an emphasis on youth-serving institutions, agencies and organizations. Then, there will be hands-on learning for leading challenging conversations about racism and advocating for more culturally-competent practices at your workplace.
This workshop will build the foundation youth work professionals need in order to show up as allies for youth of color. It is open to people of all backgrounds.
