Youth-Adult Partnership for Youth Empowerment

The Online Youth-Adult Partnership (Y-AP) Training emerges as a beacon for youth empowerment. This self-guided program, tailored for both individuals and groups, offers a comprehensive roadmap for volunteers and professionals eager to nurture collaborative relationships between youth and adults.

Through these sessions, participants embark on a journey of reflection, equipped with the tools to address pivotal questions central to advancing youth empowerment:

  1. Implementing High-Quality Y-AP: Participants learn strategies for collaborating effectively with youth and adults to create impactful programs.
  2. Outcomes of Y-AP: Exploring the benefits of fostering Youth-Adult Partnerships, participants uncover the positive results such collaborations can yield.
  3. Where to Start: Identifying prime opportunities within existing programs for integrating Youth-Adult Partnership, participants learn to initiate and nurture these relationships.
  4. Y-AP Tools for Creating Quality: Equipped with practical tools and methodologies, participants lay the foundation for continuous improvement and enhancement of Youth-Adult Partnership initiatives.
  5. Y-AP Recruitment: Participants research strategies for engaging new youth and adults in the program through the lens of Youth-Adult Partnership, broadening participation and diversity.
  6. Y-AP in Wisconsin: Drawing inspiration from local success stories, participants gain insights into real-world examples of effective Youth-Adult Partnership initiatives within Wisconsin.
