SLIDE SHOW. A uniquely interactive session about forming an engaged youth initiative at UVA
Goal: Develop concrete aims and desired types of infrastructure and activity for an Engaged Youth Initiative at UVA.
We heard from groups on and off Grounds about the work they are doing around youth engagement. Then we will focus on small group discussions with attendees, facilitated by the panelists in order to help us think about how the different activities of the University (research, education, etc.) can support the work of youth engagement.
