Event time: 
Wednesday, February 7, 2024 - 12:00pm to 1:30pm
Event description: 

In this interactive presentation and dialogue, we explore youth identity development from understanding the synergies between holding multiple identities, for example, Black, neurodivergent, LGBTQIA. Geared toward youth leaders, layperson, and youth ministers we develop approaches of how oppression, power, and privilege may operate across systems. The overall goal is to develop approaches of how to create safer spaces for youth in their relationships and community building efforts.

Learning Objectives:

  • Understand the relationship between oppression, power, and privilege
  • Review key findings from State of Mental Health of Youth of Color - Aakoma Project
  • Assess and understand developmental challenges of identity development in today’s social political climate
  • Understand role of active listening and emotional intelligence skills
