Amplified Voices: Youth Advocacy
Workshop Session Description
Join nonprofit representatives from Our Tomorrow as they discuss the importance of empowering today's youth to become advocates for change in their communities. This session is designed to offer participants strategies and resources that will help to unlock the full potential of your young people and ensure that all young people are ready for the future.
The participants will learn how to:
Develop positive self-identities based on their membership in multiple groups in society (Identity)
Respond to diversity by building empathy, respect, understanding, and connection (Diversity)
Recognize that power and privilege influence relationships on interpersonal, intergroup and institutional levels and consider how they have been affected by those dynamics (Justice)
Plan and carry out collective action against bias and injustice in the world and will evaluate what strategies are most effective (Action)
Our Tomorrow is helping young people find their voices and build their futures. They connect young people from across the city and train them as researchers and policy advocates while helping to foster the leaders of tomorrow, today. Working with school districts and local government leaders, they help adults understand the importance of giving young people a seat at the table.
