Youth Engagement

Young people are hungry to talk about the things that matter to them…

VISIONS creates opportunities to learn about and address the personal and community-wide impacts of critical issues surrounding diversity, inclusion and equity. Enhancing youth leadership skills is a key component in all of our youth work.

We provide workshops, technical assistance and training for youth, and the adults who support them. Our workshops for youth are co-facilitated by VISIONS Youth Consultants (ages 16-24), who are trained to teach youth peer leadership skills.

Youth services and resources currently offered include:

  • Customized workshops and programs for youth, as well as for adults who work with youth.
  • The Legacy Project, a summer employment and leadership skills training program.
  • YES! Kit, a printed training curriculum with DVD support available for purchase and use by adults and youth workers.
“I have learned to voice my opinion and be more open to others. Prior to VISIONS I thought differences were a bad thing, but now I have learned the importance of embracing them.”
Karen, Legacy Project participant
“VISIONS works on the person within, changing the way they think and see the world.”
Lesedi, Legacy Project participant
