How can we strengthen youth leadership through civic engagement? In the fall of 2018, the New York City Department of Youth and Community Development (DYCD) convened a Youth Leadership Workgroup to explore this question and identify strategies for strengthening youth leadership and civic engagement practices across its network of funded programs. As part of its efforts, the workgroup developed a common definition for civic engagement as well as a set of recommendations to help guide civic engagement programming. Participants in this presentation will gain a better understanding of civic engagement and its connections to skill-building and learn about strategies and resources for promoting civic engagement in youth-serving programs. This presentation will also showcase DYCD’s process for developing its approach to civic engagement and offer practical tools and ideas for replicating this work.
