Authentic Youth Engagement Workshop
As part of the Knowledge Mobilization work being done by the Halton Youth Initiative, a virtual Authentic Youth Engagement Workshop was held on June 8, 2022.
The Halton Youth Initiative (2018-2021) illustrated that when you intentionally build and support youth-focused initiatives, communities can:
exceed outreach goals
provide safer in-person and virtual spaces to gather, and
maximize the positive impact on issues that matter to young people
Key findings from the project evaluation and report were shared by both youth and adults connected to the project sharing their direct experiences. Opportunities were provided to interact with the presenters and attendees to support one another in our youth engagement journeys. Speakers included volunteers from the Halton Youth Voices Council (the legacy council of this project).
