Youth-Adult Partnerships

As the adult in a youth-adult partnership, you not only initiate the Process by giving students the opportunity to explore and solve problems in their local community, but you also keep the Process going.

The following resources will help you to:

  • Provide supportive activities, lead clarifying discussions, or invite Expert Volunteers to speak with your students
  • Help students to uncover the answer to questions to which you don’t know the answer
  • Use guiding questions provided at the beginning of each step that can help you stay in the “guide on the side” role
