WEBINAR | Engaging Youth: Inspiring Stories & Lessons Learned

Webinars and Videos, Communities Building Youth Futures, Youth Engagement

Engagement 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?

Listen to Emily Branje of Community Living Ontario, Samantha Reusch of Apathy is Boring, as they share their stories of innovative youth engagement approaches and their lessons learned.
