Black Joy: Working with At Promise Youth

Presented by: Kim Young, MSW. LCSW (Owner of Dope Black Social Worker, LLC)

This webinar will focus on theories, tips, and strategies for engaging and working with at promise multi-systems involved youth.

About Me:

I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) in the Commonwealth of Virginia with over a decade of experience working along side at promise youth, families, and communities. I am deeply committed to cross sector collaboration that utilizes an asset based approach to develop strategies which promote community driven solutions to system created problems.

I have experience in providing direct clinical services to youth and adults in psychiatric hospitals , residential treatment and community based settings. I specialize in working with cross systems involved youth and young adults who have experienced and participated in acts of community violence.

In 2019 I made the shift upstream and stepped away from direct service to begin working on programatic, organizational and system changes.

I am on a mission to eliminate suffering for black youth by fighting to eliminate barriers to dreaming, increase youth visibility, and create pathways to opportunities. I believe that relationships heal and there is power in empathy, compassion, and kindness.
