Northwest Network: Youth Leadership as Violence Prevention Work
As the traditional school year starts for many young people, this webinar will focus on tools to support youth leadership for youth outside of that system. While the goal for webinar participants is to build skills to support youth self-determination and leadership broadly, our data and experience pulls largely from experiences with homeless and unstably housed youth. Both in practice and policy, these skills are critical in prevention work with young people and their support networks. This webinar will 1) unpack the impacts of adultism on youth and how it affects experiences of violence and 2) walk through organizational tools for supporting youth self-determination and organizational input.
