Youth Development brown bag webinar series
Sponsored by University of Minnesota Extension Center for Youth Development and North Dakota State University Center for 4-H Youth Development
The University of Minnesota Extension and North Dakota State University Extension have partnered to offer the youth development brown bag webinar series since 2010. The purpose is to provide research-based information on hot topics, trends, and innovative programmatic efforts on content relevant to youth practitioners over the lunch hour (11:30 a.m. - 1 p.m. CT). The free webinar format provides professional development opportunities for people who work with youth without the cost and travel usually incurred with workshops and conferences. Participants are able to ask questions and get answers in real-time, while the presenter conducts interactive discussions, questions, and polls for sharing and applying the information to participants' work.
This webinar series is free to participants, but registration is required.

This webinar will explore how youth in programs could be the very resource needed to improve program quality! Presenters will be drawing from an ongoing pilot project aimed at including youth in program evaluation and 4-H program improvement planning, and highlighting current research regarding the impacts of participatory evaluation practices with young people.
The webinar will outline best practices, investigate the important elements of youth-adult partnerships to engage youth in evaluation and assessment projects, and leave participants with some strategies that can help build participatory evaluation practices into any youth program.
