REIMAGINE YOUTH REENTRY CONFERENCE 2022
Hosted by the Coalition for Engaged Education, along with Project Rebound at Cal State Long Beach on September 17, 2022, this conference was designed to bring opportunity and encouragement for those who are often turned away because of past mistakes. Speakers, workshops and resource tables were presented to youth ages 14-24 who have been system-impacted.
Special guest speaker Jarad Nava spoke about his experience in the justice system and how he turned his life around and is now working in a California Senator's office. Workshops on education, mindfulness, apprenticeships and expunging a juvenile record were presented alongside over 40 resource tables the youth could discuss issues with one-on-one.
We look forward to the next conference! Stay tuned for 2023 dates and location.
