Promoting Engagement and Empowerment
April 15, 2014
9:00 am - 3:30 pm
James H. Rainwater Conference Center, Valdosta, Georgia
Registration Fee: $10
Young people can thrive when they feel safe and supported to learn and lead. Building an emotionally safe community of peers and adults is essential for youth to learn and develop as individuals and is foundational to youth voice and leadership.
The first part of this interactive workshop will introduce participants to a variety of community-building activities designed to create an infrastructure necessary to support choice, voice and leadership.
The second half of the workshop will highlight best practice methods and strategies for incorporating meaningful youth input at both activity and organizational levels. In addition to tools and resources, participants will gain insight into how meaningful voice and leadership are key factors in promoting youths’ long-term well-being.
