In our collected efforts toward increasing youth voice in decision making we'd like to invite community partners, young leaders and adult allies for 4 days of engaging panels, workshops and learning alongside one another.
We invite community organizations to apply in teams which must include an adult ally and at least one young leader participant. We want to ensure that young leaders and their adult allies have increased shared language, tools and experience to continue building on the work of youth leadership within their organizations. Registration link will be sent to teams once an application has been submitted and reviewed.
The Youth Leadership Institute has 4 modules spread over 4 days:
- November 5 Relationships for social change with a focus on how personal, organizational and community relationships enable success and will also increase participants knowledge of power, oppression, conflict and communication
- November 6 Systems analysis and change making helps build an understanding of the systems we are impacted by and how young leaders and their adult allies can be part of influencing them for change
- November 19 Research, Learning and Evaluation must play a key role in systems change making efforts so the focus will be on how to use, embed or increase the application of research, learning and evaluation by young leaders and adult allies
- November 20 Mobilization for change will increase participants understanding of the spectrum of mobilization and will provide an opportunity to dream into the future for how we might wish to mobilize around shared issues in the future
Each module will be a jam packed day starting with a hot breakfast served between 9-10 am, program will begin at 10am sharp and carry all the way through till 4:30pm.
We are proud to provide this offering alongside amazing young leaders and community partners who are providing content, workshops, panelists and enthusiasm for this first ever Youth Leadership Institute.
