What is Youth Engagement?
Youth Engagement is involving young people in responsible, challenging actions to create positive social change. This means involving young people in planning and decisions that affect themselves and others. Youth engagement occurs in EPIC in youth-adult partnerships that are structured so that both groups learn and teach each other.
