In this series of modules, participants will, uncover the dynamics of power, privilege, and oppression in society; understand the definition and role of allies in creating anti-oppressive environments; take steps to become an ally.
During this training participants will further explore their “FRAMES” created in module 3.5.1 and explore diversity through the use of quotations and small group discussions.
This training deeply explores privilege in order to help participants develop their own self-awareness around their privilege and how it impacts their work with children and youth. There is only one activity for the entire training.
This topic exposes participants to the multiple ways privilege and power play out in the form of oppression. Participants will reflect on how privilege, power, and oppression play out in their lives and how they connect to their work with children and youth.
During this training, participants will explore the impact of cliques in their programs, how they are formed, how they affect individual children and youth, and how they impact the safe and supportive program environment.
This module was revised in 2016 to incorporate social-emotional learning, character building and Quality Standards for Expanded Learning in California as part of CalSAC's work with the Expanded Learning 360/365 project.
