Youth/Adult Powersharing Assessment Workshop

Adultism is often a major problem in schools and youth programs and we define it as the systematic mistreatment and disrespect of young people where adult allies share power. To raise up the voices of young people and demonstrate to organizations how to do the same with actionable tools we created this workshop. This individualized assessment workshop is meant to build your base of knowledge on the value of including Youth Power in your organization and how to implement youth-power practices to dismantle adultism and share power. We will explore strategies to foster genuine partnerships with young people, enabling them to become active participants in decision-making processes. By the end of this training, participants will have an introduction to the knowledge and tools needed to build authentic youth coalitions, ensuring that our future leaders are not just seen, but heard, respected, and actively involved in shaping the world around them. This workshop is an introduction to what adultism is and what youth-led/youth-centered means. An organizational self-assessment tool with a set of metrics and tips organized across three levels to support power-sharing between young people and adults. A scorecard for documenting the current assessment for your organization as it currently operates. An action template for prioritizing tangible goals for where you would like your organization to be and how you are going to get there. Recommended resources and discussion questions for further learning and reflection are also included. Join us in making sure we build a movement of organizations honoring the power of young people.
