When young people who have faced serious challenges, such as being in the child welfare, juvenile justice or mental health system, tell the story of how they made positive changes in their lives, they often talk about a relationship with a worker as a critical part of that positive change. This webinar highlights findings from the Center for the Study of Social Policy’s new report, Transformational Relationships for Youth Success, that explores powerful relationships and will include real life examples from interviews with youth, staff and organization leaders. You will learn about:

  • what workers actually do to form transformational relationships with youth
  • how those relationships help youth change
  • ways to apply these ideas to your work with young people
  • recommendations for what public agencies and organizations can do to support relationship building
