Engagement, participation, involvement and leadership. These words are now cornerstones of our youth and development policies, white papers and proposals. We might believe in them and commit to them but doing them right is hard. In this workshop we disentangle what has failed and what shows promise for engaging youth in program design, research, implementation and advocacy. Learn about Youth-centered design, participatory action research, and youth-adult partnerships; and about the power of trust in ensuring those approaches work for youth.
