Vulnerable Youth Populations Webinar 4.28.15 – USDA-NIFA invites participants to the initial national rollout of Vulnerable Populations Program during a 2:00 – 3:15 ET webinar Tuesday. Engagement and inclusion of new youth audiences is important to the Extension System. Specific populations, including those growing up in low income households, diverse racial and ethnic groups, immigrants and children of immigrants, and others, under-served by 4-H. These same populations -- which comprise a large and growing percentage of our country’s young people -- disproportionately contend with conditions that often compromise healthy development and access to support for it, even as they carry rich cultural resources and cultivate strength and insight through adversity. Registration for the webinar is required at http://www.evite.com/event/0012YOGLZQJTCAVGQEPE4OEUFIEIUE. Connect to the session at http://nifa-connect.nifa.usda.gov/r75cfyw2nuh/. The call in number is 888-844-9905, access code 2056866.
