Exploring Structural Racism and Cultural Responsiveness: An Inclusive Approach for Youth Programs
School's Out Washington developed these foundational trainings for all staff working directly with young people. Since these trainings build upon one another, we highly recommend starting with Exploring Structural Racism before moving on to Cultural Responsiveness.
Exploring Structural Racism
In this foundational workshop, we explain structural racism, provide examples of and data on structural racism, and discuss implications for youth. The material can be emotionally challenging and we will provide what we hope will be a helpful structure for understanding and a learning environment for every participant to grow.
Cultural Responsiveness – An Inclusive Approach for Youth Programs
This workshop explores cultural identities, perspectives, and relationships that impact youth and shares best practices for an inclusive, welcoming, and respectful environment for all youth. This offering trains professionals to understand and implement the guiding principles of Cultural Responsiveness: “Quality programs respect and are responsive to the diversity of program participants, their families, and community.”
Please note: Due to the limitations of virtual training, some content may slightly differ from in person training.
