The Rocky Mountain Public Health Training Center is currently accepting registrations for the following 7-week course:

Social Justice Approach
to Youth Engagement

April 12 - May 24
Tuesdays, 1:00 pm -2:00 pm MST
Are you ready to be challenged to move your youth engagement work forward? Are you looking for actionable ways to advance equity in your community?

Social justice youth development combines intentional anti-oppressive practice with and for young people, with knowledge and skill-building from youth development to support youth as they negotiate and disrupt the misuses of power in their lives.

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 and with youth.

This online course simulates an in-person training environment by having all participants on screen via video. This allows for an engaging and interactive learning environment where you get to know the instructor and the other participants.
