Partner or Window-Dressing: A Model for Empowering Youth to Make Change

Event date: 
September 25, 2013 03:00 pm - 04:15 pm EDT
Underage Drinking Enforcement Training Center (UDETC)

This youth-taught workshop presented by New Hampshire’s Dover Youth to Youth (a nationally recognized student advocacy group) uses the “Knowledge > Skills > Action” model to share how youth can be organized and empowered to become effective.  A focus of the webinar will be on how the model can be used to achieve policy change and shifts in community norms. Many of the principles will be illustrated by examining the “Refrigerator Campaign,” a multimedia strategy to reduce youth access to alcohol by motivating parents to control access to alcohol in their homes. This webinar is ideal for adults, coalitions, or organizations that would like to work effectively with youth advocates, those who would like to have greater youth involvement, those who want to broaden their existing youth advocacy efforts, and youth who are interested in advocacy.
