Youth in Conversation – Countywide Student Dialogues, Monthly Through May 2019
October 1st, 2018
Youth in Conversation is open to all high school students who want to “talk about the things no one talks about.” Its goal is to build community by having conversations about identities we have in common and issues that separate us, such as race, culture, religion and gender.
- Share experiences
- Talk about what is helping students feel connected to, and separated from, each other
- Learn tools for dialogue
Meetings are held on Mondays, 6:30 – 8:30 p.m. at Oliver’s Carriage House, 5410 Leaf Treader Way, Columbia. Meeting dates for the 2018-2019 year are:
- October 8 and 22
- November 11 and 26
- December 10
- January 14 and 28, 2019
- February 11 and 25
- March 11 and 25
- April 8 and 29
- May 13
