Hear Us Out! Essential Collaborative Youth-Guided Approaches

“Nothing about us without us” has long been the rallying cheer from young people for effective policy and service delivery. Learn directly from youth leaders who have successfully elevated authentic youth engagement with various public and private partners. We will highlight innovative ways to promote youth voice and choice, including program co-design, policy and advocacy, board governance, participatory research, and the implementation of best practices. Hear why it matters, what works, and lessons learned. “Nothing about us without us” has long been the rallying cheer from young people for effective policy and service delivery.
