FREE Webinar | Community Mobilization Part II: How to Create an Effective Youth Leadership Team

Thursday, March 10th, 2016 - 11:00am to 12:00pm

Adults spend a lot of time trying to figure out how to help young people — without ever involving the young people themselves. Teens have a powerful influence on one another and wide-spread, long-term change in teen behavior won’t happen unless teens are able to take a lead role. Discover what it takes to facilitate a strong, informed Youth Leadership Team that will support your mission, expand what you can achieve, and sustain the work long-term.

Participants will learn how to:

  1. Define “community mobilization” and how a Youth Leadership Team is essential to mobilizing a community.
  2. Introduce effective strategies to recruit and retain youth members.
  3. Summarize the Social Change Model of Leadership Development as the backbone model for facilitating a Youth Leadership Team.
