Professionals and organizations are continuing to make strides in working with youth instead of around them. In support of this movement, RAISE has developed a second series of toolkits meant to provide Parent Center professionals with a framework for how to approach programming centered in youth empowerment. This next series will look at taking the next step in youth empowerment and leadership development. This webinar will take a look at frameworks for individual youth empowerment and discuss strategies for utilizing them as you develop programming at your own agencies and organizations.
