Because of recent occurrences of violence and injustice, the call for cultural responsivity was revived for some and revealed to others. Many people were reminded of the need to develop skills and awareness to become respectful to everyone. Staff who work with system-involved youth must work with people from different cultural backgrounds, serve system-involved youth who are disproportionately youth of color, and work to cultivate an environment within their agency that is safe for all. In this interactive training, staff who work with system-involved youth will engage in productive dialogue to learn steps toward cultivating this environment within their agencies to better support and help improve outcomes for the system-involved youth and families they serve.
