Forum on Critical Relationships

Thursday, November 16, 2017 - 9:30am to 4:30pm

About the Forum

Save the date for MMP's day long forum on November 16th convening youth serving practitioners from across the Commonwealth to explore the exciting new work of scholar and practitioner Torie Weiston-Serdan, author of Critical Mentoring: A Practical Guide.

Critical mentoring challenges our traditional thinking of youth-adult relationships through exploration of mentoring practices and the dominant worldviews that inform them, while centering the voices and experiences of youth of color and other marginalized youth. With critical mentoring as the foundation, participants will learn actionable practices to build program capacity to better support young people in their communities.

Breakout Sessions Include:

  • Executive Director Corner on Cultural Responsiveness
  • The Air They Breathe: Creating Safer Spaces for Youth
  • Relationships and Race
  • Centering Youth Voice
  • Restorative Justice Practices
