Youth Empowerment Workgroup

Youth empowerment is a process where children and young people are encouraged to take charge of their lives. They do this by addressing their situation and then take action in order to improve their access to resources and transform their consciousness through their beliefs, values, and attitudes.

The purpose of the Youth Empowerment Workgroup is to ensure a culture, vision, and system that supports a young person’s ability to exercise power over one’s life by being skilled, critically aware, and active in creating community change.
