Learning Community for Young Professionals Working with Young Adults
Join us in this monthly series, every fourth Wednesday of the month from September 2021 through July of 2022, to connect with others who share concern and passion for developmentally appropriate and appealing systems and supports for youth and young adults. Maybe you're a peer support provider or a new professional with lived experience. Whatever your role, if you are a young adult professional seeking to make peer-to-peer connections and develop your professional capacity, this learning community serves as a forum to learn and build skills with other mental health workforce professionals.
In addition to the valuable expertise each participant brings, we host guest subject matter experts. We've hosted presenters from the Center for Law and Social Policy, Youth MOVE National, and the Hugh Lane Wellness Foundation to discuss topics ranging from structural racism to supporting LGBTQ youth to low-barrier services. We hope you will join us in shared learning, engaging conversations, and young professional networking.
The target audience for this learning community is young professionals in the Pacific Southwest working with youth and young adults of transition age. As a community, we encourage members to serve as peer facilitators and be engaged to maximize the exchange of ideas and strategies for better serving youth and young adults.
