Session 4: Collective Knowledge Session on Youth Voice
Presenter: Timothy Jones
Wednesday December 9th, 11:30AM-1:30PM
What’s the best way to help young people make good decisions, now and as they grow older? Is it by restricting their choices and running your youth program like a drill sergeant? No! As one educational writer puts it, “Youth learn how to make good choices by making choices, not by following directions.” Organized activities for youth—whether in an after school program, a community center, or somewhere else—can provide wonderful contexts for youth to experience voice, control, and to practice decision making.
