In today’s zeitgeist, a university is usually allied with the community it surrounds. However, some sub-communities within a community are often disconnected resulting in a lost sense of belonging. The fifth annual Black Youth Guidance Forum (BYGF) is proud to present, “COMMUNIVERSITY: Nurturing Healthy Societies during COVID and Beyond. The event makes available space to reflect on best practices for collaborating between higher education units and their surrounding areas. The BYGF invites participation of African American youth and other youth of color, school stakeholders (e.g. parents, teachers, counselors, administrators, and staff), and nonprofit organizations in Los Angeles County. They will join CSUN students from various departments and programs, including Africana studies, liberal studies, and the credential program. Join us as the BYGF promotes self-care, including but not limited to financial literacy, educational literacy, and health & well-being, especially during COVID.
