Ohio Youth-Led Programs contend that youth truly are smarter than adults in the matters that affect them. Youth Led Programs empower youth to influence the social and political systems that affect their lives. Through this process youth develop critical skills necessary to engage in strategic planning, and are perceived not as youth at risk, but youth at promise. In this workshop, participants will learn how Ohio’s model and Strategic Prevention Framework (SPF) produced broad-based environmental change in two widely different demographics: rural Geauga County and urban Columbus, Ohio.
