Our society is filled with systems. A lot of them affect youth.
Whether we’re talking about obvious systems like education, health care and juvenile justice, or less tangible systems like culture and families, its important to understand how each of these affects youth engagement.
While I’ve worked with schools, nonprofits, government agencies and other orgs over the last 17 years, I’ve explored how and these systems operate. I’ve seen “under the hood” in dozens of communities, watched the bad and the good arise in times of crisis and seasons of apparent ease… and every time I’m reminded of the systems at work.
Whether they’re sustainably connected through sports, culture, work, school, faith, justice, health, family, civic action, social services, mental health, recreation, or other systems, ALL youth EVERY where can experience the positive, powerful potential of youth engagement. Let’s explore that together!
I’m offering a new series on Systems of Youth Engagement. If you’re interested in learning how I can help you, your organization or your community, call me today at (360)489-9680 or send me an email. Want to learn on your own? See the links below.
