Saturday, 2:15 pm - 3:45 pm -- Sellinger 008

In this workshop, we have two major aims. First, we outline the ways that Social Justice Youth Development can assist with helping students heal from trauma. Second, our youth identify the ways that Social Justice Youth Development can be used to challenge inequality in various school context through Youth Participatory Action Research. We will close our workshop by helping workshop attendees begin to think through ways that they can incorporate a SJYD model into their work.
