Time & Location
Aug 05, 2022, 9:00 AM – 4:00 PM PDT
About the Event
Growing up in poverty can have lasting impacts on system-involved youth and their families so it’s essential for social service providers, caregivers, parents, and natural support people working with system-involved youth to understand how their socioeconomic upbringing impacts their ability to understand poverty and the challenges to get out of it. The trainers will discuss strategies for more effectively engaging individuals and families in poverty and ways to empower them. This is crucial for providers, caregivers, and natural support people to learn as many system-involved youth live in or near poverty, with some youth living in communities plagued by poverty.
· Participants will be able to discuss how their socioeconomic upbringing impacts their efforts to support system-involved youth
· Participants will be able to describe how poverty impacts system-involved youth’s emotional heath
· Participants will be able to describe how poverty can impact youth’s physical performance
· Participants will be able to identify at least 1 strategy to support system-involved youth in poverty
