Stop Saving Youth

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Tryna get real and be direct? Tired of being a young person directed by the ideas of adults “supporting you”? In this session will explore the Trans Youth Support Network's strategies for combatting adultism, queer/transphobia, racism and the structures that uphold them. Together we will identify the differences between working for youth and working with youth. We will develop hard skills and the commitment necessary for youth empowerment. Participants are encouraged to come with youth or adults they’d like to build with.
