From Participation to Engagement: A Review of Conceptual Models for Developing Youth Engagement Strategies
The purpose of this review is to identify models that describe types or methods of youth participation. This will inform the development of a youth engagement framework for bringing young people’s voices into an organization. The main knowledge area relevant to this research is children/youth participation, which is based more broadly on concepts derived from community and citizenship participation. The models reviewed in this document were gathered from scholarly articles about youth/community engagement, participation, and inclusion; youth engagement guidelines/toolkits; and youth engagement policies and practices from government and non government organizations.
