Rethinking Relationships: Engaging Youth & Connecting Communities is a resource guide that describes a wide array of mentoring strategies that can be used with diverse groups of youth, ages 11-14 years, toward the promotion of healthy and equal relationships. The Rethinking Relationships conference, on November 20, 2009, attended by close to 500 people, most of whom were youth, featured youth-led workshops and creative activities on topics such as racism, sexism, dating violence, and homophobia. The aim of this 1-day conference was to share innovative strategies for working with youth toward the promotion of healthy and equal relationships and the elimination of all forms of violence and injustice.
