For youth-serving organizations, community collaboratives, frontline providers, mentors and other youth supporters, keeping students in school and on-track may be a challenging endeavor without the benefit of having youth voice in the discussion. Through their voices, young people can help guide solutions and improve connections that help caring adults better understand how to meet their needs. But what to do if all you get is a shrug of the shoulders?
Join us on Wed., Oct. 28 at 3 p.m. ET for a Google+ Hangout with Craig McClay, youth engagement advisor for America's Promise Alliance's Center for Promise, on how to better listen to and connect with young people. As one of the lead interviewers for the Don't Call Them Dropouts report, McClay will share some proven techniques for how to work with, and gain the trust of young people in your community. The live event will be recorded, and there will be an opportunity to ask questions.
