Social Justice Approach to Youth Engagement Fall 2019
Course 9/5/2019 – 10/24/2019: 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.
Clinical-Community Linkages Community of Practice
Community of Practice: This is a Community of Practice formed out of innovative work of the Regional Health Connector Program that was housed at Trailhead Institute and Colorado Health Institute. The RHCs are community members who connect the systems that keep their communities healthy – including primary care, public health, social services, and other community resources. This CoP will meet quarterly to broaden the workforce development and network that was begun in Colorado throughout Region 8 (MT, WY, UT, ND, SD, CO). We are looking for members who are interested in strengthening their community engagement, clinical engagement, and/or clinical-community linkages.
