Programs that engage youth directly have proven to be more successful. Youth listening sessions offer an opportunity to engage youth meaningfully, signaling that their opinions are valuable while incorporating their voices into program discovery, planning, implementation, and evaluation. This toolkit is for grantees looking to learn how to conduct all stages of a youth listening session; promote inclusive practices to support safe and supportive environments that accommodate equitable opportunities for youth participation; inspire innovative approaches and creative problem-solving when soliciting youth input and ideas; and to engage youth as equal partners in the discovery, planning, implementation, and evaluation stages of youth-serving programs.
