Youth Engagement Training
This interactive half-day training will be run by youth for adults who either work with young people, or are hoping to engage young people in their programs. These student leaders will walk participants through creating opportunities for youth to flourish, how to engage youth with purpose, and how to sustain youth-driven efforts in their community. Youth are so influential in creating change not only among their peer group, but within the state and community, come learn how to fully engage this sector to create a long lasting difference within your programs.
