Feb. 19, 2018
9 a.m. - 12 noon

University of Minnesota, St. Paul Campus

Continuing Education and Conference Center
Free, but registration is required.
Based on stakeholder input, we chose to hold this event on a school release day to encourage young people to attend. If you can bring a group of youth, please email Kate Walker.

Register now!

Youth development is a "go-to" strategy for improving the path youth take in life, but critical perspective is often missing. Can youth programs, researchers and practitioners be truly effective in meeting the needs of youth of color without discussions and theories informing research and practice?

We need new and innovative ways to think about youth work that include a critical analysis of how race, gender, class and sexuality relate to our programming, goals and outcomes. Self-work, including equity and diversity training, is necessary to transform youth work. At this symposium, Torie and Connor will discuss race theory, cultural competence, intersectionality and what youth work looks like in today’s America through their demonstration of intergenerational dialogue.
