Learn how to better engage communities of color. Positive Youth Development (PYD), the focus of this session, is dedicated to teaching workshop participants to model this approach for both in-school and after school services. Participants will learn the difference between cultural competency and cultural humility, become familiar with the Latin American Youth Center PYD approach and agency best practices, recognize opportunities for diverse cultural spaces in the classroom, identify available community resources to support this work, and increase awareness of internalized bias and growth opportunities. This is a must-attend workshop for tools in cultural awareness.
