This year, our Youth Leadership Team are partnering with staff to create a series of four Skill Enrichment Workshops for all of our interns. These workshops will provide youth interns (and the Youth Leadership Team) with opportunities to gain skills, share experiences, and learn from one another over the course of the year. The skill enrichment sessions will complement our formal workshop series.
During our first skill enrichment workshop, the Youth Leadership Team and staff presented new workshop journals to youth participants and led youth in a series of team building and reflective exercises about their new internship. These activities were designed to help youth get to know one another and to help them get comfortable with sharing their work-based experiences.
