Event description
Come dip your toes into Youth Driven practices at The Neutral Zone's two-day introductory training!

About this Event

Join us for two full days of strategies, practices and ideas for how to start and support an effective youth advisory in your program or school. We design our workshops to be active, engaging and focused on practical strategies and practices that can be directly applied to your work.

Research demonstrates that providing youth greater voice and leadership in the programs that serve them has many benefits: their participation grows, as does their engagement, interest, and investment.

A greater leadership role provides new opportunities to develop 21st century skills like problem-solving, collaboration, communication, & critical thinking.

As a result of the 2-day training participants will be able to:

 Identify meaningful roles youth can play in programs

 Learn the components and stages of Neutral Zone’s Teen Advisory Council

 Examine participatory research processes as a way to engage youth

 Learn and use planning strategies that can be applied to involving students in project

 Understand the components of youth-adult partnerships (YAP) and how to support YAP

 Practice strategies, including scaffolding and divergent questioning to effectively support youth-driven initiatives

For programs residing in 7 county area of SE Michigan workshop cost is only $15

Workshops take place from 9:30-3:30, each day, at Neutral Zone, 310 E. Washington Street, Ann Arbor MI 48104

Remaining costs covered by a grant from Ralph C. Wilson Family Foundation
