Social Justice Programming
How to Engage Older Youth Through Social Justice-Based Programming
All young people have the capacity to be change agents in society. The Bridging Multiple Worlds Competencies create engaging, affirming environments that help all young people to thrive and learn how to make a difference in the world. This workshop explores these social justice-based competencies and ways in which programs can help them come to life.
Involving Youth In Decision-Making
How to Develop Opportunities for Meaningful Youth Input
Every young person brings unique skills, talents, and leadership potential to your program. By engaging youth in meaningful leadership opportunities, educators can foster healthier learning environments while instilling the confidence youth need to become active citizens in their schools and communities. This workshop will help educators learn how to resist the urge to overrule decisions made by young people, react constructively when young people make “mistakes,” and create an environment that fosters the capacity of youth for constructive decision-making.
