In a world of talented, energetic, and motivated young people, why is it important to consciously choose to facilitate meaningful youth engagement? By providing a supportive space for expression, choice, and decision-making positive behavioural, emotional and education impacts will abound. Giving young people the opportunity for active and meaningful civic participation encourages personal growth and connection to the world around them. By investing in the creativity and skills of young people, they are given the power to reach their full potential.
