PARTNERS | YOUTH VOICE
YOUTH VOICE is a network
for young people to develop their
leadership skills and make community
change. A minimum of 5 youth come
together from a school, organization,
church, or neighborhood to form a
chapter. Together, they meet weekly and
learn strategies to identify solutions to
concerns they face as young people. They
conduct research and build relationships
with city officials, plan and organize
community events, and learn skills such as
management, planning and goal setting,
conflict resolution and negotiating,
research and computer skills, problem
solving, critical thinking, public speaking,
teamwork and relationship building.
