Youth Engagement: Youth Engagement Matters

Tuesday, 02/05/2019
11:00 AM
12:15 PM
Chesapeake G-I


Coalition sustainability is predicated on the recruitment, engagement, and retention of youth. The role adults play in guiding and developing youth leadership can mean the difference between ensuring opportunities for youth to have a strong presence within the coalition, or a passive voice. This interactive workshop will focus on coalition development through youth recruitment and effective strategies which can be implemented to retain youth’s involvement in community coalition work. Trends in youth development and behavior will be examined, as well as effective approaches for empowering youth to be seen, to be heard, and to develop leadership skills.

Learning Objectives

At the end of this session, participants will be able to identify strategies for recruiting, retaining and rewarding youth in coalition work. They will also be able to identify strategies for youth development within coalition work and understand youth relationships and personality types impacting behavior and motivation.
