Who will be at the youth summit?
SFUSD elementary to high school-aged youth will be attending the youth summit. This year, service providers, community organizations, and retention programs from City College of San Francisco and San Francisco State University will be tabling during lunch time, so students will have the opportunity to access resources, services for themselves and their families, and summer job opportunities. Educators will be attending workshops given by service providers to better their direct service practice.
What do the workshops look like?
In the past, we’ve had students lead and participate in workshops on the following topics: Pacific Islander community activism, immigrant rights, Latinx representation in schools, practicing self-love as an act of resistance, using murals to reclaim our identity and space, addressing anxiety and mental health through coloring, student spaces - how can a student space promote self-love and community?, gun control and gun violence in the community, rights as trans & queer youth in schools, police accountability, Black Student Project: What Black students need in SF, Gentrification in District 11, Food Justice.
