Workshops - SOLD OUT! 
Creating Youth-Centric Organizations 

Never mind the children, is your organization "at risk?"

In the nonprofit sector, we've grown comfortable describing youth as "at risk" based on their race, identity, or other demographic or situational characteristics. Yet rarely do we consider how "at risk" we adults are of not understanding or meeting their needs.

At our workshops, you'll learn practical strategies for more effectively engaging and partnering with youth of color - and how to create programs and policies that benefit all youth rather than inadvertently push them away. 

DUe to popular demand, the workshops are sold out BUT YOU CAN LEARN MORE HERE & SIGN UP TO BE NOTIFIED OF FUTURE SESSIONS & HOW TO ORGANIZE A WORKSHOP AT YOUR ORgAnizATION.

See How We Impacted City Policy! 

At our recent Youth Forum, young people courageously shared their serious concerns about changes City Councilmember Rebecca Noecker was proposing to Saint Paul's curfew law. As a result of their feedback, she withdrew her proposal.

It demonstrates the importance and power of youth voice in policy and of St. Paul Youth Services' leadership in connecting policymakers with young people to create a community that wraps its arms around our youth. Read CM Noecker's statement

Thank you for responding to youth concerns, CM Noecker!

ABOUT THE PHOTOS ON THIS WEBSITE To honor young people's power to represent themselves, we commissioned youth artists at Intermedia Arts to photograph their peers. This allows us to preserve the confidentiality of our youth program clients, many of whom are facing challenging situations, and demonstrate that young people are best able to tell their own stories.
