We're excited to unveil a new NCFY report that looks at youth engagement strategies that challenge young people to take charge of their wellbeing.
First we talk to a youth worker who wants to make sure that youth self-advocacy is always trauma-informed. Next we speak to two university professors who have employed transition-age young people as research assistants. And last, we hear from a Michigan drop-in center that asks their participants to shape every facet of programming, from the courses on offer to hiring new staff.
