Why?…Is not a Bad Word

Clifton King, Jr., Mentors of Minorities in Education, Inc. (M.O.M.I.E., Inc)
Grades: PreK-12
During my 30+ years of youth development, the oft asked question by youth is…WHY? For some reason, that’s also the question that drives most youth workers insane, it’s as if we rather the youth comply, under the guise of development and participation. In this session we will explore the “WHYS of WHY’!’ Why do youth question ‘everything’? Why am I annoyed/bothered by their questioning? Why don’t I answer their questions?… After exploring these ‘WHYS’, we can discover ways to foster more meaningful and sustaining relationships between students, families, educators, and other stakeholders.
