A wide range of cultural competency issues are addressed in this resource for raising diversity awareness in teenagers. With a comprehensive approach that incorporates a variety of learning styles and skill levels, the three sections include personal awareness activities for those with little exposure to diversity issues, a section for building cultural awareness around a particular topic, and practice activities for trying out new relationship-building methods. Each activity invites participants to examine their attitudes and behaviors about diversity and makes the lesson tangible with group discussion. More than 20 reproducible activity sheets and scripts provide group leaders with hands on tools and ready to use lesson plans, and a section on facilitation techniques helps program leaders guide sensitive discussions.
