The YouthPower Learning Youth Engagement Community of Practice (CoP) and the American Evaluation Association (AEA) Youth-Focused Evaluation Topical Interest Group (YFE-TIG) invite you to attend the webinar "Engaging Youth in Research."

This webinar will share findings from a study conducted by the University of California, Berkeley for UNICEF on engaging adolescents in research. Youth-led participatory research techniques are an interesting way to ensure that the youth voice is included in program design, implementation, and evaluation. Lead authors Dr. Emily Ozer and Ms. Amber Akemi Piatt will discuss the benefits of youth-led research, as well as useful techniques for training and supporting young investigators. This is the first webinar in a series that the YouthPower Learning Youth Engagement Community of Practice is co-hosting with the American Evaluation Association’s (AEA) Youth-Focused Evaluation Topical Interest Group (YFE-TIG).
