Racism in our institutional policies and practices significantly contributes to the poor outcomes that youth of color experience. As youth Practitioners, we need to recognize the fundamental contribution that structural racism has on the youth barriers that the field often seeks to address.

In this one hour in a half course you will learn:

  • The racist history of our past
  • How racism persists in our nation, schools, and youth program
  • Strategies and approaches for promoting racial equity in the youth field

Once you complete the course, you will be emailed a professional development certificate and still have access to the course materials for up to one year after you enroll.
