Whether returning to the classroom for the first time since early 2020, transitioning from hybrid back to a regular schedule, or returning to a routine with less disruption, this fall will be an inflection point for the adolescents in our communities. While many of our early efforts of support necessarily focused on younger kids, now is the time to turn our attention to and invest deeply in adolescents. This four-part webinar series will support any adults who work with adolescents to:
-More deeply understand the adolescent experience over the last 18-months through both science and hearing directly from young people
-Consider how we cannot just build back focused on our own systems, classrooms, or programs, but Build Forward Together
-Reimagine what schools might look like this fall to most effectively support adolescent learning and development
In this final of four webinars, participants will learn about "Learning from the Experts – A Youth Led, Youth Panel." Tweens and teens have been deeply impacted, not just by the COVID pandemic, but by the racial reckonings across the nation over the last 18-months. In this youth-led and -driven panel, 5 adolescents will share more about their experiences, what they hope for during the next year, and what adults can do to support youth like them. This expert discussion with young people from across the country is the capstone to this series on rebuilding for the fall.
