Youth Voice & Youth-Adult Partnership Professional Development Series, Part 2

March 19 @ 8:30 am - 2:30 pm

The second sessions of the Youth Voice & Youth-Adult Partnership Professional Development Series will happen on March 19, 2019 for High Schools, and on March 21, 2019 for Middle Schools. Schools will attend one or the other, but not both, events. These events will include student participants.


Part 2: Working Together in High School and Middle School

These workshops will model the process of elevating youth voice and building youth-adult partnership in our schools. Using developmentally appropriate tools, we will facilitate protocols that promote dialogue and build a shared vision, assess progress, set goals and identify next steps. Participants will engage in activities from UP for Learning initiatives along with strategies from similar initiatives across the country and around the globe. Teams will end each session understanding the roles and responsibilities of young people and their adult partners in learning and school change.

Note: Participants are encouraged to attend in youth-adult teams. We suggest that teams be made up of youth who represent the diversity of your school community.

Target Audience: Middle and High School Educators, Educational Leaders, Students

Additional Series session:

February 5, 2019 Introduction & Overview of Structures and Practices for Implementation

We will explore why it is particularly important at this time in Vermont’s history to build school cultures where we “listen to, learn from and lead with” our students in order to fulfill the promise of personalization and proficiency-based learning. In this highly interactive workshop, participants will learn protocols for amplifying youth voice and youth-adult partnership in learning and decision making, and clarifying the roles and responsibilities of students and teachers in personalizing learning.

*This series can be linked to Russ Quaglia and Lisa Lande’s session the day before and is a natural progression for teams wanting to continue with opportunities for student/adult partnership – including a session with students. Presenter joint planning will support a seamless transition between sessions.
