Project-Based Learning

How to Put Young People in the Lead

Youth development research has shown that project-based learning fosters critical thinking, positive attitudes toward school, and increased civic engagement. This workshop will present tools and strategies to help programs develop youth-led project-based learning initiatives that will help youth acquire important academic and life skills. Participants will leave with concrete strategies for planning and carrying out youth-led projects, including techniques for ongoing reflection and project assessment.

This is a popular session we've facilitated for grantees of NYC's Department of Community and Youth Development (DYCD) COMPASS programs, 21st CCLC programs in New Hampshire, and various others.
