Teen Engagement Strategies / Creating a Youth Voice
To have a purpose and reason to participate in your program, teens must first be provided a space to feel heard. This workshop helps program leaders develop the necessary tools to engage youth in afterschool programs by developing the skills necessary to deepen both student engagement and create student-run programs. When teens feel their voices are being heard, and when adults know how to “step back” and allow youth to run a program, success occurs. Step back, and let them do all of the work!
