August 5th, 11am – 4pm Healthy Relationships & Boundaries
This workshop looks at a variety of oppressions that young people have learned to internalize. Through various activities involving movement, writing, and discussion, there will be opportunities to explore how oppression influences the perspectives on oneself and to come up with ways to break free of these false or negative perceptions.
August 7th, 11am – 4pm Understanding Internalized Oppression
Together we will explore the concept of boundaries: what they are and where they come from. This also looks at why boundaries are important foundations to having healthy, anti-oppressive relationships with ourselves, our friends, our family and our significant others.
August 12th, 11am – 4pm Unpacking Ageism in Youth Engagement
In this workshop we will unpack ageism that affects children and youth. Here we are encouraged to share our experiences of what it is like to be a young person while navigating power dynamics in an adult-dominated world. As well as what we can learn from these experiences to become better at practicing allyship for young people as we move into adulthood.
August 14th, 11am – 4pm Effective Allyship with Young People
As a group we will look at power and privilege and what it means for us and the people around us. As young people, we will identify our privilege and our capacity to work in meaningful solidarity with diverse individuals and groups. We will explore some of these opportunities for allyship, especially with our peers who experience multiple layers of marginalization and people who are much younger than us.
