Youth Collaboration 2 0 How to Sustain a Youth Action Board

Recorded On: Wednesday, February 17, 2021

Systems change can only occur if the group most impacted by the system are equal partners in the process. Youth Action Boards (YABs) have served as the vehicle to develop authentic partnerships with young leaders. Many organizations find it challenging to develop and sustain their Youth Action Boards. This webinar will introduce participants to a model that can help sustain and build capacity among YABs. The cascading mentorship model emphasizes meaningful and empowering relationships and support between program directors, program facilitators/mentors, and youth participants. The model was developed by centering the youth voice. The cascading mentorship model combined with cross-systems work can have an impact on developing systems change.
