Understanding Homeless, Home-free and Street Based Youth Who Do What They Have to do to Survive
An accountability training designed by the Chicago Street Youth in Motion Task Force as a guide for teaching youth organizations and institutions on how to be accountable to us.
The Chicago street youth in Motion task force has been working really hard to find new and creative ways to hold helping organizations and institutions accountable to us. This task force is a component of the Street Youth Rise Up Campaign– a youth led campaign organized by the Young Women’s Empowerment Project (YWEP) to change the way Chicago sees and treats its homeless, home-free and street based youth for doing what they have to survive.This interactive training will provide the opportunity for organizations and institutions to learn what it’s like to be a homeless, home-free and/or street based youth living in Chicago.
It will address the challenges and stigma they face when trying to access services and seeking help from institutions. This training will also provide tools on how you can be accountable to street based youth and what street based youth are doing to teach and hold organizations and institutions accountable to them.
