June 7, 2018, Our Journey Together TA Series hosted a webinar, Our Journey Together: Out-of-School Youth Cohort Challenge Review, highlighting lessons learned from eight teams selected to take part in a mission to unpack out-of-school youth (OSY) engagement and retention, and develop solutions that will advance the youth workforce development field.

Resources created from this work include:

Empowering Youth as Active Participants Tip Sheet which provides assessment survey questions and tools; staff tips; motivational interviewing techniques & case scenarios.

Recruitment, Marketing and Outreach Strategies Tip Sheet provides information on how to better reach youth; how to speak their language; social media outlets youth are using; what to do if you are not social media savvy and other relevant facts.

Planning Human Centered Design Programs: Empowering Youth Challenge shares story boards on how to continue to strengthen ways to keep youth motivated and empowered.

Use these resources to help enhance your youth engagement.
