YMCA Mission Forum
Centering the Margins: A Conversation on the Youth Mental Health Crisis through an Equity Lens
YMCA Mission Forums are a deep dive into a singular issue or topic to gain a more nuanced understanding of the unique barriers and opportunities that exist in our communities, and how you can work with the Y to address those needs through volunteerism, learning, and creating access to programs and initiatives which address community needs and produces positive impact for all.
We are dedicated to creating a space that is engaging, youthful, and deeply intersectional – a space rooted in hope, optimism, and is asset-based and community-centered while digging into the true realities and current state of the youth mental health crisis.
Our March Mission Forum addresses the youth mental health crisis, with a focus on the disparate impacts on Queer and Transgender Black, Indigenous, and people of color (QTBIPOC) youth.
