BENJIE HOWARD & WADE ANTONIO COLWELL on Youth Equity Stewardship (YES): Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion
Here’s your opportunity to hear more from founders Benjie Howard and Wade Antonio Colwell about YES, a sustainable creative facilitation process for youth that enables them to enthusiastically engage in their own learning and advocate for culturally responsive learning environments. YES is rooted in arts-based methods that aim to bring the youth perspective, vision, creativity, and passion to the forefront of policy and progress for a twenty-first century school system. Benjie and Wade will demonstrate how YES amplifies student voice and supports young people in understanding their personal journey and social accountability through a critical social justice lens that creates a living example of commitment to diversity, equity and inclusion.
