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
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.
