Good youth work requires a strong sense of self on the part of the youth worker, but all too often, whiteness is awkward for white youth workers (and youth) to talk about. This 2-day, 8-hour training will offer participants room to talk about the challenges of addressing, confronting and embracing their identities as white youth workers, their reasons for working in communities of color, and what they can’t and shouldn’t bring to the work. Scenarios and other interactive tools will be used to help explore what best practices are in terms of talking with youth about race, addressing power dynamics, building alliances with youth workers of color, and sharing approaches and tools to help navigate challenges that come up in this work.
