FedListens: Helping Youth Thrive—A Discussion with Leaders

March 18 @ 2:00 pm 3:15 pm EDT

Helping Youth Thrive A Discussion with Leaders

For young people, both higher education and the workforce are on the horizon, but two years of pandemic-fueled setbacks threaten to leave many behind. What are the barriers to their recovery, and how are community leaders addressing them?

Hear from education and youth development leaders on:

  • Academic and socio-emotional learning
  • Trauma and loss
  • College-career-workforce pathways

Event details

Panelists will discuss what it takes to help young people thrive during and after the pandemic, with a particular focus on the pandemic’s effect on the barriers to economic mobility for low-income and historically underserved youth.

This event is free and open to the public, but registration is advised. Questions for the panelists can be submitted during the registration process.
