SETTING STRATEGIC GOALS FOR THE SEMESTER

As youth express interests it is important to identify skill sets and resources for accomplishing goals. No matter how many ideas you brainstorm it takes goal-setting and strategic planning to implement.

We will discuss the roadmap necessary for engaging students towards collective, sustainable goals and interests in a school year.

TOOLS FOR CULTIVATING
YOUTH-CENTERED LEADERSHIP 

Youth-centered organizations requires more than student's presence and following adult's instructions. It requires intentional centering of youth through active listening, team-building, collective planning....and sometimes trying new ideas beyond the norm. 

We will discuss practical steps for communicating with youth effectively, creating memorable experiences and building supportive relationships.
