YCteen Stories Raise Awareness of Disproportionality

YCteen Stories Raise Awareness of Disproportionality On June 6, 2019, YCteen writer Rainier Harris and YouthComm education director Janelle Greco presented the workshop "My Story, Our Story: Raising Awareness of Disproportionality Using Teen-Written Stories" for educators at the 2019 Youth Summit, sponsored by Youth Technical Assistance Center on Address Disproportionality (YTAC-D). Workshop participants read a YCteen story out loud and then discussed how they can use youth voice to create more inclusive, humanizing, and critical learning environments for all members of their school communities.
