Your organization or community group wants to involve young people in your work. You've had a few youth participate over the years but have never had any great success at fully including them or keeping their interest. Should you keep making an effort to get youth engaged? Does their participation really matter? The answer is a very emphatic "YES!" In this webinar participants will discuss why youth engagement is critical to communities, what barriers exist to youth engagement and how to overcome them, and how youth-adult partnerships are the most central aspect of authentic youth engagement.

Our presenter: Lauren Traister is the Teen & Leadership Program Coordinator for the University of Vermont Extension's 4-H Program. Her work includes promoting positive youth development and teaching youth leadership, citizenship, and life skills.
