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

When we put youth voice at the center of our classrooms, transformative things can happen—rich discussions unfold, participation increases, and students take a more active role in their own learning. This workshop will give participants an opportunity to see and hear what can happen when student voices are placed at the heart of social-emotional learning (SEL) instruction. Participants learn how to use Youth Communication’s uniquely relevant teen-written stories to generate discussion of SEL skills, engage in group discussion, and pair activities that support active listening and student engagement.

About This Event

Educators frequently work with students and families who have been exposed to trauma in their lives; in some cases, multiple traumas. As you teach, support, and develop relationships with your students, you learn about their lives, often revealing intimate details about their trauma experiences. Through time, this ongoing exposure to students’ traumas can lead to compassion fatigue or even educator burnout. It is critical to learn about the signs and effects of vicarious trauma. Additionally, this webinar will share the importance of establishing a self-care routine.
