Engaging Youth: Inspiring Stories and Lessons Learned

Tamarack Institute LogoEngagement is critical for all programs, services, and initiatives that impact youth. Both youth and organizations that serve youth agree that youth engagement is a must-do but there seems to be a disconnect in how to actually do it well. We hear often about the challenges of engaging youth such as low participation rates or difficulty reaching youth, and also frustrations from youth about not feeling listened to or understood. So how do you do it well?

During this webinar we will hear two stories of innovative approaches to youth engagement and pull out their lessons learned, to inspire you to thoughtfully consider ways to improve your own youth engagement practices.

Note: this is a bilingual webinar in both English and French.

Whether used individually, or sequenced together, Liberating Structures demonstrate how high-impact change often happens through small shifts in how we think and interact.

Join Tamarack’s Sylvia Cheuy to learn more about Liberating Structures and the principles that make them work. Learn about – and experience – some of Sylvia’s personal favourites and expand your changemaker tool-kit with a rich array of road-tested approaches to unleash collective creativity.
