Students Commission of Canada (n.d.). A model for engaging youth in evidence-informed policy and program development.
This document describes a model that supports youth in their ability to consider research alongside their own experiences for making policy and program development recommendations. Relevant concepts, frameworks and contexts are the starting point. The model provides guidance for progressive stages (initiation, execution, outcomes) of a youth engagement event. Resources include a sample task plan and a comprehensive logistics checklist.
This toolkit provides a template for single event youth engagement with a focus on policy or program development. Those involved in planning youth engagement events may benefit from the insights and tools shared as part of this resource.
