With COVID-19 impacting in-person programming of OC Human Relations’ youth programs, The Human Relations Ambassadors Program (HRAP) and The Walk In My Shoes Conference (WIMS), our Youth and Education Team has pivoted our work to a monthly workshop series that will engage a larger Orange County youth audience on a virtual platform.
As our nation continues to grapple with a quadruple pandemic of racial injustice, public health crisis, economic crisis, and education crisis, we believe it is more important than ever, to engage young people in the socio-political climate we are living in. From October to May, our staff will provide introductory to advanced level workshops on various issues impacting us today, such as racism, immigration, climate change, gender inequality, LGBTQIA+ issues, etc.
Workshops will occur the 3rd Wednesday of every month from 5:00-7:00pm and are open to any Orange County high school student.
