PSL Yengage Training 2018 (2 of 31) (1).

Our mission is to answer the needs of young people who desire to make a change in their world but need guidance on the effective steps to do so. We empower and teach young people how to serve their communities through civic and political engagement.

Why Y.Engage?

As the moniker suggests, Y.Engage, truly believes in engaging young people and that they have the power to take on the issues of their communities to promote positive change. We practice this as well. That is why all of our trainers have first hand experience in meaningful youth engagement, community organizing and social change efforts.

Core Values

1

Authenticity

Present the truth and acknowledging reality is critical to our relationships with our partners, but especially to the young people. Real recognizes real, and youth respond to what’s real.

3

Diversity

The world we live in today has so many different shades and threads that create this beautiful picture. Having various perspectives and beliefs at our table brings understanding.

2

Transparency

In addition to honesty, we believe in open communication and view accountability as a central tenet to human interaction.

Personal Development

At the end of the day, we’re in the business of developing people. We want to see young people step into their potential and harness the power that they have within.

Y.ENGAGE Training will help you answer these questions:

 

  1. What does it really mean to be a civic activist for drug abuse prevention?

  2. What more can I be doing as a young person in this mission?

  3. What do I need to know about the system in order to push forward?

  4. What message will I use to mobilize other young people to join our cause?

  5. What am I committed to doing after this training?

Our goal is to change the perceptions and realities of:

  1. Young people as activists in this movement

  2. The problem and how to address it

  3. Your community and its resources

  4. The solution
