One of the most significant challenges for those supporting system involved youth is to effectively engage youth and families and help them build constructive, transformational behaviors that are sustainable and lead to healthy community engagement and improved outcomes for system involved youth. We will explore how to enhance our capacity to support system involved youth by identifying their leadership qualities, redirecting their energy towards project development, and coaching them on skills needed to self-advocate towards financial success and leadership roles in their community where others can follow them.

This approach will strengthen their child social and emotional development and wellbeing, foster their resilience to be able to heal from traumatic events. Practicing and sharing the methods outlined by this workshop will allow us to deepen our effectiveness with system-involved youth and their families while supporting them towards healthier lifestyles and will help change the culture of how we empower system involved youth.
