Assets, Healing, and Hope
10:00am-Noon, IN PERSON at MCCOY
The goal of discussing Assets, Healing, and Hope is to center the dialogue around utilizing asset-centered language to highlight the gifts and talents of young people, negating deficit-based narratives and mindsets. Also, integrating healing-centered strategies to foster collective and cultural relationships and community impact, while supporting spaces of the creation and fostering of hope and determined aspirations. This presentation has the desired outcomes of changing narratives, building collaborations, and sustaining spaces of safety and hopefulness.
