K419 – Youth, Community, and Systems Change
This generalist policy practice course examines how youth, families, and communities affect change in their lives through participation in the public sphere. Participation will be defined in two ways. First, we will consider it as citizenship practices. Second, we will survey practices of those who do not have formal or full citizenship rights (e.g. children, immigrants). Students will learn how systems thinking applies across a wide range of practice settings. They will build upon generalist skills and consider how they apply to meso level practice.
