In this workshop, facilitators will share how Youth Participatory Action Research (YPAR) can be used to empower and engage communities of color in organizations and foundations. YPAR, given its participatory framework, can build community power around an organization’s mission and vision. Not only does this research framework shift power dynamics, build and strengthen youth leadership, but it also can leave your organization and community with a stronger relationship to create and build solutions together.
As a participant, you will walk away with a YPAR curriculum that they can use to facilitate a youth research team within your own organization.
This workshop is for educators, organizations, foundations, and community members looking to learn more about YPAR, youth-led methodologies, solution building, and action planning.
Facilitators: Irina Barrera, Neese Parker
