|Core Principles for Engaging Young People in Community Change
|Karen Pittman, Shanetta Martin, and Anderson Williams|
|This resource describes eight principles that any organization can use to help youth see that they have the responsibility and resources to improve their communities. The eight principles are: (1) designing an aggressive outreach strategy, (2) creating a strong home base, (3) identifying core issues, (4) conveying an intentional philosophy, (5) creating youth/ adult teams, (6) building youth and adult capacity, (7) providing individual support, and (8) sustaining access and influence. These principles were formulated from field research and are designed to engage young people in impacting a community. The authors describe each principle and provide concrete examples of implementation along with reflection questions.
