Terms of engagement

Theresa K. Sullivan

Sept., 2008

This presentation is the first in a series on youth engagement and was presented at the University of Minnesota Extension Center for Youth Development on September 26, 2008.

What is youth engagement? What does the research say about it—what are its benefits and how do you do it well? Why is it important? What do we, as a state, need in order to promote and support youth engagement?

Terri presents a new framework to help decipher the many and varied definitions, goals and principals of "youth engagement" found in literature and among researchers and practitioners around the state. She synthesizes what youth and adult practitioners, participants, and researchers say it takes to make the most of youth engagement opportunities to benefit participating youth, adults, organizations, and communities.
