This webinar provided valuable insight on how to authentically work with underrepresented, marginalized youth so that you/your organization can effectively develop, inspire and nurture youth leadership and engagement. Based on her extensive experience working with youth from diverse communities, Amy Hosotsuji, Coordinator of the Grassroots Youth Collaborative, and Duane Hall, Events Curator and founding member of Toronto-based grassroots youth organization Spoke N’ Heard share 10 top strategies and key observations on this topic, including reflections and case study examples from individual, organizational, community and systemic contexts.
