Seattle Advanced Youth Engagement Workshop

Responding to demand from around Washington and across the United States, Service Learning SeattleCommonAction ConsultingSOARand IDEA are partnering to bring an advanced youth engagement workshop to Seattle this month. And its open to the public!

Are you a long-time youth worker, teacher, or adult ally who has used youth engagement to change your community? Join Adam Fletcher for a daylong session to reflect on what you know, gather new tools and strategies, and connect with other advanced practitioners from across the city. This workshop is recommended for people who’ve been intentionally using youth engagement strategies for at least three years.

Participants will experience hands-on activities focused on practical action. In a highly-interactive style, Adam will facilitate conversations, personal reflection, and other activities designed to dig deep into current practice, identify challenges, and create new solutions. Through substantial interaction and sharing professional experiences, participants will also create lasting relationships with each other.

Learning Goals

Participants will…
  • Identify their professional learning about youth engagement and critically reflect on successes and failures.
  • Examine their knowledge, assumptions, and practices with youth engagement using research-based tools.
  • Create strategic professional action plans in order to infuse practice into daily operations for greater efficacy.
