Rebuilding with Adolescents in Mind: A Return to School Webinar Series in July 2021 & Expanded Conversation with Experts

Whether returning to the classroom for the first time since early 2020, transitioning from hybrid back to a regular schedule, or returning to a routine with less disruption, this fall will be an inflection point for the adolescents in our communities. Tweens and teens have been deeply impacted, not just by the COVID pandemic, but by the racial reckonings across the nation. While many of our early efforts of support necessarily focused on younger kids, now is the time to turn our attention to and invest deeply in adolescents. This four-part webinar series will support any adults who work with adolescents to:

  • More deeply understand the adolescent experience over the last 18-months through both science and hearing directly from young people.
  • Consider how we cannot just build back focused on our own systems, classrooms, or programs, but Build Forward Together.
  • Reimagine what schools might look like this fall to most effectively support adolescent learning and development.

This webinar series is supported by the Readiness Project, the Center for the Developing Adolescent, and Youth-Nex.
