More Than Voice: The Cycle of Engagement

The other day I presented a few workshops at the 2012 Bridge Conference in Seattle. One focused focused on my Cycle of Engagement, and was called “More Than Voice: The Cycle of Engagement“. I walked participants through the various ways we can move past understanding Youth Voice as a singular, passive activity, instead engaging young people as partners throughout our programs. We discussed traditional and convenient Youth Voice versus nontraditional and inconvenient Youth Voice, as well as barriers to youth engagement.

Following is the powerpoint presentation I used during the workshop.

Hope you enjoy it! Share any thoughts below?!?
