Limited Capacity seats available

In this session, we will explore how to build positive relationships with youth and young adults of color. By using evidence based practices such as relational cultural theory and the theory of hope we will trace how growth fostering relationships can shift the trajectory of an individual's life. We will also focus on uplifting youth voice and agency in your work with youth so that they can reclaim their power and change not only their outcomes, but their community as a whole.
