Moving Up the Ladder of Youth Engagement

Young people can be powerful contributors to society, but too often adults don’t seek or hear their voices. Youth voice is not about letting youth help us with our work, our issues, and our problems.  It is about working together as partners, collaborators, and allies to solve problems together.  Join us as we explore the core ingredients of authentic youth engagement and discuss ways for you to be successful in working with young people.

About our presenter: Our presenter is Lauren Traister, UVM Extension 4-H Teen & Leadership Program Coordinator.  Lauren runs a variety of programs to develop life and leadership skills in young people.  She has 11 years of experience with experiential learning, life skill development, leadership training and youth engagement.
