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.
