Engaging High-Risk or At-Risk Youth

Many youths are labelled at-risk or high-risk by ser­vice providers, the school sys­tem, the crim­i­nal jus­tice sys­tem, and soci­ety as a whole. Exam­ine con­cepts of at-risk/high-risk’ youth and its impli­ca­tions, the issues that cre­ate mar­gin­al­iza­tion and stigma­ti­za­tion and the ways to min­i­mize these; and how com­mu­ni­ty agen­cies (e.g., gov­ern­ment, non-prof­it) respect­ful­ly engage youth as an agent for change in, and a pos­i­tive con­trib­u­tor to, the com­mu­ni­ty through build­ing a pos­i­tive rela­tion­ship with them. Under­stand the views, voic­es, and expe­ri­ences of a select group of youths who will co-instruct this course with the prin­ci­pal instructor.
