Engaging Youth in Research

Wednesday, March 15, 11:00 am - 12:00 pm EST

The YouthPower Learning Youth Engagement Community of Practice (CoP) and the American Evaluation Association (AEA) Youth-Focused Evaluation Topical Interest Group (YFE-TIG) invite you to attend the webinar "Engaging Youth in Research" on March 15 at 11:00 am EST.

  • Want to know how youth-led research can benefit program design, implementation, and evaluation?
  • Looking for engaging techniques that help train youth to be strong researchers?

This webinar will share findings from a study conducted by the University of California, Berkeley for UNICEF on engaging adolescents in research. Youth-led participatory research techniques are an interesting way to ensure that the youth voice is included in program design, implementation, and evaluation. Lead authors Dr. Emily Ozer and Ms. Amber Akemi Piatt will discuss the benefits of youth-led research, as well as useful techniques for training and supporting young investigators. This is the first webinar in a series that the YouthPower Learning Youth Engagement Community of Practice is co-hosting with the American Evaluation Association’s (AEA) Youth-Focused Evaluation Topical Interest Group (YFE-TIG).
