Education Change and Youth Engagement: Strategies for Success

By Youth Leadership Institute
June 16, 2015

This clear, concise guide provides an overview of five strategies for engaging youth in education reform. It makes the case for involving youth as decision-makers and partners in problem solving, seeing youth engagement as a strategy rather than an outcome. It highlights the Youth Leadership Institute’s theory of change including, strategies, stake-holder actions, and the resulting education outcomes. Each of the five strategies (youth-adult partnerships, skill and capacity-building, youth action research, community organizing, and youth in decision-making) is described along with a snapshot of a school or organization using the strategy, and tips for putting it into practice.
