Through this project, St Paul Youth Services with work with adults to create a shift in their lens from "serving youth of color" to a focus on adult accountability. The “Creating Youth-Centric Organizations” workshops will give organizations and adults the language and skills to evaluate biases and assumptions towards the populations they serve, while hearing first-hand, through a panel discussion, from Black youth, youth of color, and Indigenous youth about their needs, desires and hopes. The workshops will also support adults and organizations in placing Black youth, youth of color and Indigenous youth at the center of decision-making.
