Youth Have Thoughts Too: The Key to Effective Youth Based Discussions

Description: In May of 2020, SBHA’s Youth Advisory Council (YAC) started a youth listening and learning series entitled “Youth Have Thoughts Too” (YHTT). Since then, they have hosted five sessions focused on various topics, including COVID-19, the Black Lives Matter movement, mental health, and vaccinations. Youth-based and youth-led discussions are a powerful way to connect with adolescents, dissect pressing issues within young populations, and give youth a voice. In this webinar, we will identify the most effective ways to plan and facilitate youth-based discussions in a way that gives your youth a platform. Join our YAC Members Brooklyn Waller and Baila Salifou as they share all they have learned through this experience and how you can apply this process in your health center or youth-serving organization.
