We invite NCDD members to start the New Year off by taking the opportunity to contribute to the conversation on youth engagement. The good people at the Center for Information & Research on Civic Learning and Engagement (CIRCLE) are hosting a free 5-week online seminar that will invite young people, youth workers, the broader civic engagement community, and more to help build on their recent report on youth engagement beginning the week of Jan. 13th.
CIRCLE’s announcement describing the seminar says:
Since the release of “All Together Now: Collaboration and Innovation for Youth Engagement,” the report of our Commission on Youth Voting and Civic Knowledge, CIRCLE has spoken with a wide range of stakeholders interested in improving the civic and political engagement opportunities and outcomes for all youth in the United States. To enhance and broaden those discussions, we have developed a FREE, five-week, open online seminar that will extend research and recommendations from the report.
The seminar will start the week of January 13 and is open to individuals and groups interested in strengthening youth engagement. We welcome and encourage young people, parents, educators, policymakers, youth advocates, researchers, and others to join this five-week learning community.
The seminar is designed to allow for multiple levels of participation and will have synchronous and asynchronous elements to accommodate those who need flexibility in their schedule.
Join us in pursuing this important work, and please share with those in your network whom you think would find this learning community of value and interest. The seminar will only be as strong as its participants.
If you are interested in participating in the seminar, you can go ahead and register here or learn more by visiting the community page for the seminar at www.civicyouth.org/tools-for-practice/learning-community. Contact [email protected] with questions.
We hope to see some of our NCDDers join up!
