Throughout the year, Cadre members engage in projects to deepen, apply and share their knowledge, including individual presentations, job-shadowing, research papers, and public presentations. At the end of the year, Cadre members will be recognized for their commitment to their professional development at a countywide youth engagement event. Cadre findings will be compiled in a best practices manual for distribution.
The Cadre is facilitated by Adam Fletcher, an internationally-recognized youth engagement expert, Teddy Wright, a seasoned youth engagement practitioner and expert facilitator, and Kyla Lackie, a community organizer and program manager for SOAR. Sponsors include Seattle Public Schools’ Youth Engagement Zone, the Corporation for National and Community Service, SOAR, and CommonAction Consulting.
