Equity & Youth Development - Symposium and Training

February 19 is the kickoff to our next 3-year public symposium series focused on exploring and supporting equity within Minnesota’s youth development programs. 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.

We have invited scholar-activist and practitioner Torie Weiston-Serdan and youth co-facilitator Morgan Campbell to join us. Torie and Morgan's work recognizes the need for new and innovative ways to think about youth work that include a critical analysis of how race, gender, class and sexuality relate. In addition, self-work, including equity and diversity training, is necessary to transform youth work.

We invite you to join us on this equity journey. Register now!

Want to dig deeper into Equity and Youth Development? Torie Weiston-Serdan has worked extensively with community-based organizations in support of their youth advocacy efforts, specializing in training mentors to work with diverse youth populations including Black, Latinx, LGBTQQ, first generation college students and low-income youth. Join Torie and Morgan for an in-depth, hands-on training on Critical Mentoring in the afternoon, following the symposium. More information and registration will be coming soon.
