Are you looking for actionable ways to advance social justice in your community? During this seven-week course, participants will be expected to critically analyze how power, privilege, and oppression operate in their own lives—and participate in conversations regarding how they can disrupt systems of power that oppress young people. This course will offer a mix of critical reflection, skill-building, applied practice, and tools and resources that will enable participants to be an advocate for youth.
Social justice youth development is focused on creating equitable opportunities for all youth and building awareness of how systems of power can oppress particular young groups. Social justice for youth engagement involves the use of intentional anti-oppressive practices for young people, as well as providing knowledge and skill-building as they negotiate and disrupt the misuses of power in their lives.
Are you ready to be challenged to move your youth engagement work forward?
What to Expect
We use a flipped-classroom approach, so you’ll work through course content independently and then connect with a small cohort of peers weekly for live learning sessions that provide an opportunity to ask questions, share your knowledge, and learn from others.
7 Live Learning Sessions:
Each session will include a facilitated discussion among class participants related to that week’s topic. A subject matter expert will lead the discussion, engage participants, and answer questions. This is a unique opportunity to connect concepts of evidence-based decision-making in your daily work! Below is the schedule for our live sessions.
Successful completion of this course requires your participation in these sessions by video using a webcam or built-in camera on your device. Contact us if you need assistance accessing a webcam.
Weekly Online Learning activities
Each week, you must complete assigned online learning activities that include reading and watching videos. There will also be a short assignment in preparation for each live learning session that should take about an hour to complete.
Look for an email from us 2 weeks before your first live session with instructions on how to access the course online. If you don’t see an email (don’t forget to check your spam folder), email firstname.lastname@example.org. Make sure you sign in prior to your first live session to complete the required activities and ensure you know how to connect with your camera.
By the end of this training, participants will be able to:
10.5 hours over 7 weeks (1.5 hours weekly) plus 1 hour of weekly asynchronous independent preparation
