Help inform our Equity and Youth Development series

The Extension Center for Youth Development's next 3‑year public symposium series will focus on exploring and supporting equity within Minnesota’s youth development programs. We have engaged an equity-focused creative strategy firm, Imagine Deliver, to help us (re)imagine and design what a series on this complex, important and emerging topic looks like.

In July we hosted a discovery day to capture insights from a diverse group of community stakeholders and young people. We learned things like 1) to encourage more youth to attend these events we should hold them on school release days, 2) we need to amplify practice-based expertise, and 3) we need to be transparent about how we are operationalizing equity within our own 4-H program.

Now we'd like to hear from you! What should this series look and feel like? Who and what do you want to learn from and about? What is something you wish you could say, ask, or talk about in your organization, but feel you can't? Please take less than 5 minutes to share your thoughtful and creative ideas here

Thank you for lending your valuable time, candid perspective and best thinking to shape our next series.
