A Guide to Resources on Youth as Leaders and Partners: Strategies, Programs, and Information.
The Indiana Youth Institute (IYI) is an intermediary agency which supports adults statewide who care about youth. This handbook, which considers young people as resources, serves as a bridge to more information on youth involvement. It defines youth leadership and participation; provides program ideas and strategies; lays the foundation for establishing and expanding networks of youth development professionals; and identifies local youth-adult partnership programs, resource people, and materials. Written for people who work with youth, the guide is divided into three parts. The first section elaborates on youth leadership and partnership and lists characteristics, responsibilities, and benefits of the programs. Section two outlines ways to solicit young people's opinions, highlights considerations before starting a program, and offers some program assessment techniques. The final section shows how to build a youth leadership and partnership program. At the end of each section are references along with a list of resource centers. Two appendices list national resources and youth leadership programs in Indiana. (RJM)
