Registration is now open for our annual Street Law Smarts Training Days workshop.
When: Tues Dec 8th and Wed Dec 9th, 2015, 10am – 5pm (attendance at both days is not necessary)
Time: 10am-4pm (Tuesday and Wednesday)
Location: Artscape Youngplace located at 180 Shaw Street, Lower Level, Toronto, Ontario (near Queen and Ossington)
An opportunity for community professionals working with and advocating for homeless and street-involved youth, ages 16-24, to learn relevant legal education and practices. Special focus on gender and sexual diversity and other intersecting identities.
Format of Workshop:
All workshops provide practical legal information related to street-involved youth. This legal information will then be infused into scenarios commonly encountered by youth – a segment led by Acting Out, a SKETCH program. Finally, participants will get to put their new knowledge into practice by applying it to the scenarios in a manner that reflects real-life solutions.
Immediate feedback by Acting Out and the Street Youth Legal Services Lawyer is available for those who request it.
