Engaging Youth Voices to Inform Change
Youth can change lives. The practice of youth engagement respects the right of young people to participate in decisions that impact their quality of life. It also honors the qualities they have honed through their life experiences. When used by programs and organizations, youth engagement strategies place young people in the role of active changemakers in developing policies, practices, and programs.

Join us as experienced Youth Advisory Board members discuss strategies for incorporating youth intentionally, effectively, and equitably into boards and stakeholder groups utilizing Harts Ladder of Participation. Speakers will discuss experiences and approaches, share resources, and facilitate discussion.
