HUMAN RELATIONS RESOURCES FOR YOUTH & SCHOOLS

We limited the youth and school resources to those that have a human relations dimension. There are several types of programs and trainings that fall under the umbrella “human relations,” several approaches to teaching youth competency in working and playing side by side with peers of different cultural, ethnic and religious backgrounds. Some programs focus on teaching techniques in conflict resolution and peer mediation whereas others guide youth in recognizing their own ingrained stereotypes helping them work towards bias reduction. Still others go deeper into helping youth understand the historical and institutional roots of oppression and inequity that keep racism alive. We included a section on “Gang Intervention and Prevention” as we have found racialized gang violence to be a significant factor in intergroup tensions in certain communities. “Safe Schools” resources, likewise, help schools alleviate violence including intergroup conflicts on campuses. “Youth Social Justice” and “Leadership Development” programs help mobilize youth to act as change agents to address racism and improve intergroup relations on their campuses and in their communities
