Virtual Convening Recording Now Available

Youth smiling and engaged in conversation

On January 14th and March 5th, Y-TAC hosted the Virtual Convening on Engaging Out-of-School and Other Opportunity Youth.

Opening Plenary speaker Hasan Davis kicked off Day 1 of the convening by reminding VR professionals how critical it is to be “Hope Dealers” for youth by meeting them “where they are to lead them where they dream.” He shared his own experience as a student with a disability who faced multiple barriers on the road to adulthood and the difference that champions (certain teachers and other caring adults) made in supporting him on his journey from being a school dropout to become a lawyer.

You can hear Hasan’s story and recommended strategies and much more by watching the video of Day 1 and Day 2 of the Virtual Convening online. Click here to access the archived recording and materials.
