Understanding and addressing trauma and healing as they affect the youth you serve requires a multi-faceted approach. When programs are able to address both student and staff trauma, and the appropriate healing-centered approach, the results are healthier graduates, stronger staff, a more effective program, and greater benefit to the community as emotionally healthy leaders emerge from YouthBuild programs.


This webinar will discuss how leading practices in the field of trauma and healing informed care are being applied across YouthBuild programs. YouthBuild grantees will present their approaches to addressing the impact of trauma on their students. Bring your success stories, concerns, and curiosities to the webinar to discuss with colleagues from across the country, and leave with new ideas for implementation at your program.
