Youth as Resources | Young people are given roles in the community.
- Solicit young people’s input in all decisions that affect them. If you’re on a decision-making board, invite young people to be members–and then really listen to what they have to say.
- If you’re in charge of a fundraising or charity event, involve your children or students. They will learn by watching you in action, but they will learn even more if they’re given a meaningful task to complete.
- Encourage kids to mentor their peers. Teach them how they can help other youth by listening to them and helping them work through their problems.
