Engaging Youth Authentically – Lunch and Learn

Youth engagement and leadership is slowly being recognized as a key component to activism, advocacy, and education- but what does it mean to engage youth meaningfully and how do we create safer spaces for youth?

 

Tuesday, March 19: Safer Spaces and Young Women’s Civic Participation

Judyannet Muchiri shares insights from her doctoral research that examines the relationship between safe/r spaces and young women’s civic participation to demonstrate the ways in which structural factors influence their participation. Using feminist and decolonial theories and methods and drawing on young women, gender equality advocates and NGOs and CBOs that work with young women in Kenya, this presentation will address:

1. How do young women understand, define, conceptualize and approach safer spaces?

2. How do young women and organizations that work with young women create safe spaces?

This presentation will also offer a framework for safer spaces.

 

Thursday, March 21: Exploring Authenticity of Leaders Engaged in Youth Programming

Jackie Dowling will present a qualitative case study exploring what contributes to authentic engagement between youth leaders and adult leaders when collaborating in for-youth-by-youth program development. Guided by adult education and feminist theories and considerations of diversity and inclusion, this presentation will explore factors that inhibit and enable an authentic engagement. Drawing from her vast experience of working with youth from around the world, and her graduate research, Jackie will engage participants in discussions on her findings and practical tools to engage youth.
