Event Type

Are you interested in increasing youth partnerships in your advocacy and/or prevention efforts? This training is designed to provide participants with the skills and knowledge necessary to not only work with youth, but to also share power and engage in meaningful partnerships.

Day 1

During the first day of this training we will gain some insight on the experience of being a young person in today’s world, and discuss how we can prepare ourselves as adults to work with youth. We will also talk specifically about how to bring youth voice into advocacy work.

Day 2

During the second day, we will discuss traditional models of youth engagement, and how they can serve to perpetuate adultism and other forms of oppression.

Participants will be introduced to more supportive and equitable youth engagement models, and will have the opportunity to discuss the pros and cons of various strategies. The second day will end with an opportunity for participants to think concretely about ways they can integrate youth voice and leadership into their work.

Sign-up Process
