About This Event

Caring adults and communities can be best positioned to provide opportunities for justice-involved young people and their families, and they can provide many benefits such as building positive character, guiding them in planning for their future, and realizing their potential. In this webinar, we will be discuss the ways mentors and mentoring programs can support youth and their families during their complicated interactions with the juvenile justice system and restore a sense of belonging. This webinar aims to bring awareness to an often under-served population of court-involved youth and the role of mentoring supports and services can play. While using the Elements of Effective Practice (and a trauma-informed lens), community-based and court-based programs will discuss best practices around working with young people involved in the juvenile justice system, and ways to provide essential supports during crisis and transition.

About This Event

Implicit bias predicts and determines our decisions and actions; it determines how we positively or negatively respond to the youth we serve.

It is important to recognize that we all have biases -this is how we process and organize information and make sense of the work around us. This session is designed to help you recognize biases and identify ways to actively work to minimize and eliminate decision making that contributes to disparities based on race, ethnicity, gender and geography in youth serving systems.

Join us for this experience and learn as we:

•define implicit bias;

•recognize the role that implicit bias can play in decision making; and

•understand how implicit bias can impact youth serving systems and organizations.
