Building Better Communities: Engaging Young Voices

Dear Community Member:
We would like to invite you to join us for the first annual Building Better Communities Conference, hosted by the Children's Studies Program at Eastern Washington University.
The goal of this new forum is to connect theories about building better communities with applications and research-based best practices. The focus this year is on engaging and empowering middle school-aged youth.
In order to build better connections, allies, and conversations in this endeavor, the conference brings youth and adults together for short presentations on theories and practice in youth engagement. Presentations will be followed by active workshops designed for youth, adults, and mixed groups. Workshops are designed to foster youth engagement and empowerment through art, play, media, and construction.
In order to deepen dialogue, discovery, and collaboration at the conference, we encourage faculty, college students, youth service professionals, parents and youth to attend!
Space is limited. Please register early.
