Engaging Youth to Thrive: Service-Learning as a Tool for Positive Youth Development
»How do you create service-learning experiences that guide youth to not only find success, but also actively thrive their lives?
Examine this question in depth and explore how adults can create service-learning experiences that encourage positive development in school-age youth, and also allow for youth to become actively engaged in their own development. This workshop will cover the youth voice spectrum, the importance of creating developmentally appropriate service experiences, and appropriate strategies for engaging youth in service at any age.

Webinar presenter: Laura Rog is the Director of Training and Technical Assistance for generationOn. Her team works with educators and nonprofits to inspire, equip, and mobilize youth to make their mark on the world. Laura began her career as an AmeriCorps VISTA with the Albion Central School District in New York. After a successful year of service, Albion Central School District hired her to coordinate federal grants and run the Finger Lakes Service Learning Institute where she provided service-learning training and programming across the region and state. In addition, she has worked with K-12 students, supervised elementary student leadership councils, facilitated weekend enrichment classes for middle school students, and taught after-school and night school classes at the senior high level. Laura's interests include adolescent development, nontraditional learning environments, and youth voice, which have led her to international work with Tanzanian students to document water needs in their schools, as well as teaching abroad in Japan in the year prior to joining generationOn.
