and practices that supports/aligns with youth development philosophy, social-emotional learning, and
cultural linguistics. Facilitators are encouraged to submit webinar topics and agendas relevant to youth
development practitioners and communities/organizations supporting youth & their families, specifically
webinars that increase attendees’ understanding of:
• Providing supportive programming and opportunities to address the unique needs of Black girls

and opportunities, especially youth in newly settled communities in Montgomery County (Afghan
and Latin American youth and communities)
