The Racial Reconciliation Experience:

The Racial Reconciliation Experience is an intentional cross-racial track threading throughout Youth Specialties’ National Youth Workers Convention. Youth leaders who have a desire to help the church and their students engage in racial reconciliation efforts are encouraged to apply for this pilot interactive experience.

This Experience includes:

  • A NYWC Intensive Seminar on Thursday November 17 where participants will learn not only about race and justice issues, but also explore their own role as reconcilers for their students, churches, and communities.
  • A city excursion to the National Underground Railroad Freedom Center in Cincinnati. 
  • 1-2 hour guided group discussions each day during NYWC.
  • A final celebration gathering on Sunday morning. 

To Apply:

If you’re interested in participating in this pilot experience, or have questions about the experience, send an email to Jacob.Eckeberger@youthspecialties.com. Although not all who apply will be accepted, those who are accepted will have their NYWC registration paid, including the cost of the intensive and the city excursion.
