From Participation to Engagement: A Review of Conceptual Models for Developing Youth Engagement Strategies
Year of production: 2020
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.
