Involving Youth In Decision-Making

How to Develop Opportunities for Meaningful Youth Input

Every young person brings unique skills, talents, and leadership potential to your program. By engaging youth in meaningful leadership opportunities, educators can foster healthier learning environments while instilling the confidence youth need to become active citizens in their schools and communities. This workshop will help educators learn how to resist the urge to overrule decisions made by young people, react constructively when young people make “mistakes,” and create an environment that fosters the capacity of youth for constructive decision-making.
