YOUTH EQUITY PODCAST: AMPLIFYING YOUTH VOICE FOR CHANGE


History UnErased and Houses on the Moon Theater Company have teamed up for our Youth Equity Podcast training program--designed to help NYCDOE students express, shape, and share remarkable stories from their lives! We believe real human stories spark transformation and that students' unheard stories have the power to create real change in our world.

The most valuable part of this PD was the scenario exercise and the discussions it brought out with colleagues. We were all concerned about how to address potential kickback from parents but with these great resources, and the strategies to engage in conversation about LGBTQ inclusion, I feel more comfortable and clear about why we are doing this! - Joe

I was so inspired that LGBTQ history was approached here in such an academically rigorous way. The materials that you have included and the context that you provide will go a long way towards making teachers who perhaps are not so comfortable feel like they can teach this and teach it well. I absolutely love the diversity and the depth of the teaching materials. - Amber
