Engaging youth in violence prevention efforts is essential to creating change in our communities and culture. Many organizations are exploring creative approaches to engage youth outside of and beyond classroom settings. Join PreventConnect and the National Resource Center on Domestic Violence to learn how state coalitions and their community partners move power, not information, to youth and provide leadership opportunities to prevent sexual and intimate partner violence. Guests will discuss how they involve youth from historically marginalized and disadvantaged communities in civic engagement, build trusting relationships with youth for development and program leadership, and create space for youth to lead prevention and social justice efforts by being effective, authentic, and accountable adult allies.
