The Woburn Youth Council (WYC) is a program designed to place young people in middle and high school in leadership roles to help address community needs. Under the guidance of AmeriCorps advisors, council members are able to participate in community service opportunities based on their interests. Members will earn volunteer hours for each meeting and service-learning event they attend and are eligible for service awards based on those hours. The WYC meets every Tuesday at the Club, from 7:00 p.m. until 8:00 p.m.

Implicit Biases are our unconscious associations that generate feelings and attitudes about other people based on race, ethnicity, age, gender and other identifying traits. We all have biases that we are unaware of, and they significantly impact how we interact with others, personally and professionally. This workshop will introduce participants to the concept of implicit bias, what it is, how it develops, its impacts, and research based debiasing strategies.
