WEBINAR: Supporting and Inspiring Native Youth
August 16, 2018 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm
Thu, Aug 16, 2018 1:00 PM – 2:15 PM EDT
There is no one-size fits all model for working with or within American Indian/Alaska Native (AI/AN) communities. Instead, we invite you to engage in some reflection around how you can create the conditions needed to support and inspire Native youth through mentoring or other youth development programming. Creating conditions means examining your program structure, communication strategies and personal biases to make sure you are not inadvertently perpetuating oppressive systems. It’s also important to understand Native communities and the ways in which mentoring and other programming can support youth within those communities. Join us as we hear from researchers, practitioners and leaders in Native communities as we discuss best practices and research findings in supporting and inspiring Native youth.
This webinar is part of the Collaborative Mentoring Webinar Series, which is funded by the Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention through the National Mentoring Resource Center and facilitated in partnership with MENTOR: The National Mentoring Partnership. These webinars would not be possible without the planning team, which includes California Mentoring Partnership, The Governor’s Prevention Partnership, Grizzlies Foundation, Illinois Mentoring Partnership, Indiana Mentoring Partnership, Institute for Youth Success, Mentor Colorado, The Mentoring Partnership & Resource Center, and Mobius – Vermont’s Mentoring Partnership.
