Youth-Driven Spaces 

  • In this 2-part session you will learn how to co-create and co-facilitate with youth using planning, reflection, and choice strategies. How do we provide a space in which we can be adult partners in our youth spaces and share that power with them? If you will be designing and leading activities throughout the summer then this session is for you.
