In this interactive workshop, participants will learn and practice strategies to develop career awareness, readiness and retention skills with young men of color. Come learn about the barriers standing in the way of professional success for low-income urban male youth of color and how we can facilitate their transition to the world of work in spite of these many obstacles. This training will raise awareness and provide valuable tools towards effective and equitable career/workforce development for male youth of color ages 14-24. This training is the 3rd within an 8 part monthly series to build cultural competence of Alameda County youth serving professionals working to empower low-income urban boys and young men of color (BYMOC). Attendees do NOT have to participate in all workshops of this series, but if you want to mark your calendars, the next ones will be 2/19, 3/19, 4/16, 5/14 and 6/4 all from 9AM-12PM at Fred Finch Youth Center in Oakland, CA. All workshops cover a different component of effective and equitable practice with BYMOC, including education, employment, mental health and serving those who identify as LGBTQ. Join us as we build a strong movement dedicated to this important cause.
