Are you providing young people with authentic, meaningful choices throughout your program? Does your program reflect the input of the youth involved? Research shows that quality programs incorporate youth input at both activity and organizational levels. This workshop will emphasize the importance of offering real choices and meaningful participation to youth, and nurturing youth leadership. This interactive workshop is focused on providing meaningful choice within activities and opportunities for youth input within the youth program itself. Participants will have the opportunity to explore the ways they offer youth Voice and Choice in their program. Participants will gain experience with Voice and Choice strategies, understand the benefits of giving youth Voice and Choice, and how to offer meaningful opportunities for participation.
