Strategy 3: Support healing, capacity, and action among youth to promote positive, youth-driven change.
For programs and initiatives to have the greatest impact on youth and families, the perspectives and voices of young people must guide their design. We promote policies and programs that create opportunities for youth to develop their capacity as leaders, voice their opinions, and guide community change. To do this, we focus on: 1) supporting the immediate needs of young people in their schools and communities, including supporting youth to heal, when necessary, from trauma; 2) building the capacity of young people by ensuring they have opportunities to nurture their strengths and talents, explore career possibilities, and build the skills required for civic engagement; and 3) building opportunities for young people to be decision-makers about critical issues that impact them.
