PARKS AFTER DARK (PAD) YOUTH DEVELOPMENT PROJECT

An L.A. County Collaborative of the Department of Public Health, the Parks & Recreation Department, and the Workforce Development, Aging, and Community Services Department


Los Angeles County Human Relations Commission staff provide Human Relations trainings to help schools and communities become safer and more inclusive. As part of this ongoing effort, Human Relations staff members currents are collaborating with other county departments to train youth-serving professionals on conflict resolution, implicit bias and prejudice, inclusion, and healthy relationships. This effort also includes support for equipping and engaging youth to expand social justice in their communities and advocate for needed social action. The youth workers apply the learnings from the training by integrating them into their regular work with youth groups. As a result, the young people gain knowledge and skills for turning their communities into beacons of hope against intolerance and human trafficking.
