Embracing Youth Centered Design (BSK, Oct 14, 11:30 AM - 1:30 PM)

STARS Credits: 2

As our world changes, we can design opportunities for our young people to be ready and able to address, challenge and problem solve daily in the world they will inherit. This training focuses on guiding youth professionals to explore the creation of authentic projects that provide engaging, meaningful learning experiences with youth in mind. We use the critical theorist lens to explore project learning as an opportunity to engage youth, connect and promote social justice.    

Through experiential learning, participants in this training will be introduced and practice a step-by-step process for designing a sample project experience for their youth.

This session is a combination of a Methods training and a Learning Community Meeting. Participants will attend a training, and then deepen understanding and strategy by having a Learning Community Meeting immediate thereafter. Learn new skills, plan for implementation, and share learning with Best Starts cohort peers and others in the community!

Please note that this will be a virtual event, and it is strongly recommended to participate using a computer.
