Youth Engagement Workshop 1: Assessing Organizational Capacity & Readiness to Successfully Engage with Youth in your Substance Use Prevention Work

Registration has now closed - thanks to all who were able to attend!

Is your organization ready to engage young people in your prevention work? Could the framework of social justice youth development add to your planned or existing work with and for youth? This 2-part series builds on highly attended and well-received previous webinars hosted by the SE PTTC and responds to requests for additional practice-oriented and interactive content.

The first workshop in this series will introduce participants to characteristics of organizations that serve as a strong foundation for youth engagement. Participants will then examine their own organizational capacity and readiness for youth engagement. After this, participants will be invited to discuss with others' ideas for advancing characteristics to include and strengthen youth voice within their own settings. The workshop will close with an introduction to social justice youth development theory as a model for how to deepen practice with and for young people.
