*_February 17: Gender Identity, Harassment and Creating Positive 
Communities for Youth _*

There is growing national awareness about the epidemic of bullying based 
on gender identity and/or sexual orientation. This thought-provoking and 
timely discussion on gender identity will examine the ways in which 
harassment and other forms of discrimination can negatively impact ALL 
young people in Vermont. Panelists Saben Littlefield, Outright Vermont; 
Jacqueline S.

Weinstock, The University of Vermont; Ace McArleton; Christopher 
Janeway; and an Outright youth will offer a brief "Gender Identity 101" 
educational session, speak to their experience and expertise, and 
facilitate a discussion about how adults can best support and create 
safe and inclusive communities in which all young people can thrive.

*_March 17: Retooling Youth Programs for Racial Equity _*

Creating environments that are inclusive and empowering to girls of all 
racial and cultural backgrounds is a work in progress for most 
youth-serving organizations.  Panel members from a variety of agencies 
and school systems throughout Vermont will explore strategies for 
aligning organizational practices to be more culturally competent, will 
discuss what has and hasn't worked, and will share strategies for youth 
service providers and educators to assure that the voices of all girls 
are heard and celebrated.

*_April 14: Class Shouldn't Determine a Youth's Future - Thoughts on 
Leveling the Playing Field _*

Class and socioeconomic factors are powerful forces that frequently 
limit youths' opportunities.  Adults who work with youth can help combat 
these forces by implementing strategies to address class issues.  Come 
hear a student, a parent, and specialists talk about what can be done to 
proactively address class and economic concerns in youth programming and 
career options. This panel discussion will focus on helping those who 
work to improve girls' and youths' lives increase their awareness about 
how class issues affect students' lives, and what can be done to help. 
This discussion will also address factors that are specific to 
programming for girls.
