Culturally Responsive Youth Work Matters examines and develops the concept of creating inclusive youth programs. Participants will explore their own and other cultural identities and examine how these critical elements impact interactions with youth. Also included is a discussion on how a culturally responsive practice creates a sense of belonging and empowerment in young people. Foundations include both lived experience and research by Milton & Janet Bennett, Uri Bronfenbrenner, Peggy Macintosh and Beverly Daniel Tantum.

How it works:

  • 3-hour format
  • Creates a safe place to share personal experiences and stories
  • Simulated experiential activities designed to help you understand the world through the lens of other cultures
