LIFT’s youth mentoring efforts will be center stage this week (June 17) in Rome, when Dr. Julia Pryce, Assistant Professor in the School of Social Work, at Loyola University Chicago presents her most recent findings on the value of youth mentoring and its impact on youth identity both individually and in community.
Three years ago, Dr. Pryce partnered with LIFT to further develop and implement a mentoring program that includes the values of democracy and children’s rights as core elements of the curriculum. Her domestic work is focused on the role of mentoring and other positive youth development approaches among system-involved (i.e., child welfare or juvenile justice) youth.
LIFT is proud and honored to partner with Dr. Pryce and Loyola University Chicago. Check back for more information on the conference and Dr. Pryce’s final published work.
