Building an Effective Citizenry–Lessons Learned From Initiatives in Youth Engagement

In 2002-2003, American Youth Policy Forum conducted a series of forums and field trips, each focused on issues related to the development of effective citizenry and youth engagement. Participants in these experiences had the opportunity to learn about the wide variety of work currently taking place to help young people take action in their schools and communities and to become engaged and effective citizens.

Researchers presented recent findings about youth civic engagement, and leaders from youth organizations discussed their efforts to engage young people in education reform, service-learning, and community activism.
