Creating a Sense of Belonging for Families
Cassandra Terry, Associate Director, Richmond Village Beacon, Richmond District Neighborhood Center, San Francisco, CA; Zak Parpia, Director of Fiscal Partnerships, California School-Age Consortium, Berkeley, CA

At the core of youth development is the belief that all youth deserve to belong and thrive. This value must extend outwards to families during this threatening time in history. We'll consider what it means to "belong" and how centering belonging at the heart of a family engagement strategy strengthens our work with families. We'll explore a vision and design for family engagement that considers what families are facing in today's political climate and how programs can provide safe spaces.

Leading Ourselves: Deepening Self-Awareness
Brandon T. Taylor, D.M, Assistant Professor, Fresno State Department of Recreation Administration, Fresno, CA; Aleah Rosario, Director of Programs, California School-Age Consortium, Berkeley, CA

Young people's emotions and behaviors affect us as leaders, and it often happens in the blink of an eye. Unless we know ourselves and have strategies to support our emotional regulation, we're not always able to show up as our best selves. Come reflect on self-awareness and self-management skills when working with youth and learn strategies to enhance these skills in yourself. From here, we'll explore strategies to support the development of youth's self-awareness and self- management skills.

Supervision with Head and Heart
Selena Levy, Program Manager, California School-Age Consortium, Berkeley, CA; Khariyyah Shabazz, Assistant Programmatic Director, Higher Ground Neighborhood Development Corp., Oakland, CA

The first step in creating an intentional process for staff development is to assess yourself. As supervisors, we navigate between providing order and predictability and inspiring change. It's important to spend time reflecting on your own needs, biases, roadblocks and experiences that have shaped your lens, and how that might impact your supervision style. We'll offer opportunities to explore supervision tools and reflect on supervision approaches that balance management and leadership actions.

Creating Respectful and Safe Learning Environments
Selena Levy, Program Manager, California School-Age Consortium, Berkeley, CA; Khariyyah Shabazz, Assistant Programmatic Director, Higher Ground Neighborhood Development Corp., Oakland, CA

To feel safe, people need to know they are respected. When creating program environments, safety and support are two key elements to consider. When youth feel connected to others, they can better empathize, and they begin to recognize the need for a safe space for all. By exploring and sharing their background, youth can show others where they are coming from. Adults have the same needs and when youth leaders know themselves, they are well equipped to design safe learning spaces and activities.

Effective Communication with Children and Youth
Kristi Sheen, Out-of-School Time Coordinator, Santee School District, Santee, CA; Zak Parpia, Director of Fiscal Partnerships, California School-Age Consortium, Berkeley, CA

Communication is expressing and sharing ideas, desires, and feelings with others. In addition to what we communicate, how we communicate is just as important to consider when working with youth. We'll dive into effective and dynamic communication tools and strategies that you can try on and take back to your program to support the delivery of engaging activities. Additionally, we'll explore mindsets and attitudes to support communicating effectively and empathetically with young people.

Cultivating Cultural Competence: Exploring Identity, Diversity, and Engagement
Cassandra Terry, Associate Director, Richmond Village Beacon, Richmond District Neighborhood Center, San Francisco, CA; Brandon T. Taylor, D.M, Assistant Professor, Fresno State Department of Recreation Administration, Fresno, CA

Culture reflects belief systems, behavioral practices, and the products of such beliefs and practices among groups of people. When our cultural beliefs or practices are not supported, we may feel unheard, hurt, shamed or worse. It's important to examine our own identity and how it might impact our behavior toward and interactions with members from different or similar cultural groups. Come explore the extent to which culture impacts your life and the lives of the young people you work with.
