The ‘Knowing Who You Are’ (KWYA) process is a 3-part process that must be completed in the following order:
1. Watch the 20 minute KWYA video.
2. Complete the web-based e-learning. It will take 4-8 hours to complete and is strongly recommended.
3. Attend the two-day training.
(Links to the video and e-learning will be sent to you upon registering.)
When youth grow up in foster care and are raised apart from their birth families, they often lose connections to their heritage and traditions.  KWYA gives participants the tools they need to help all youth develop and maintain a healthy racial and ethnic identity, regardless of the youth’s race or ethnicity.
The KWYA workshop is designed for anyone working with youth and families. The curriculum helps participants explore race and ethnicity, preparing them to support the healthy development of the racial and ethnic identity of youth. This is a wonderful workshop for anyone serving families, teen and children. It is also great for anyone interested in exploring issues around race and ethnic identity.
