Developing responsible youth through youth participation / Mary Conway Kohler --Experiential learning and information assimilation: toward an appropriate mix / James S. Coleman --Education for participation: implications for school curriculum and instruction / Ralph W. Tyler --Experiential education: strengthening the learning process / Ron. Youth participation is important and has benefits for the young people themselves, the youth group and community as a whole. It is the role of the volunteer youth worker to encourage young people’s participation. Young people become more confident and enthusiastic when they see that their views are being taken seriously and acted upon.

Youth Civic and Political Engagement is an invaluable resource for researchers, teachers, youth workers, civil society activists, policymakers and politicians who wish to acquire an up-to-date understanding of the factors and processes that influence young people’s civic and political engagement, and how to promote youth engagement. The theory of change "unifies" the various efforts required to ultimately reduce barriers to youth participation and institutionalize youth-inclusive and -responsive political practices. The two primary components that propel this process are the development of youth agency and an enabling environment for their participation.

Book Description: In a period where social unrest manifests itself by coinciding with young people's dissatisfaction with formal political involvement and the diversification of protest movements across the globe, the question of youth participation is at the forefront of democratic societies. This training will include facilitated sessions and discussions based around four modules to help youth workers improve their skills and confidence in youth involvement. We’ll also create of a personalised practical plan to help improve youth involvement and participation within your organisation.
