Engaging Youth in Policy at a Local Level
This project aimed to engage youth in policy development. This goal was created in response to a concern regarding the lack of knowledge among youth about the activities, functions and responsibilities of their municipal council and officials.
By offering training and development opportunities to youth, young people were empowered to become increasingly more engaged, particularly in learning about their potential to influence through advocacy. The youth that participated gained skills, connected with a community of like-minded youth, and were able to develop a concrete outcome, from which they could further engage.
