Youth Community Conversations are facilitated dialogues for children and teens. Each conversation tackles a different issue in young people’s lives, like virtual learning, social media, and bullying. A trained facilitator guides the children and teens in a conversation to share and be heard.
We divide the conversations by age group. Elementary school students, middle school students, and high school students meet with groups of their peers to talk about topics that they are interested in. Through that process, they gain active listening skills, learn about other points of view, and connect with each other.
All Conversations are currently held online.
All participants need parent permission before signing up. Use the form at the bottom of the page.
