Wisdom2Action (W2A) is partnering with the National Alliance for Children and Youth (NACY), and joining forces with many other partners, to facilitate a national conversation about effective youth engagement with youth, service providers, researchers and others working with youth.  At the heart of youth engagement is the empowerment of young people and the acknowledgement of youth as valuable partners in addressing and making decisions in governance and program design and delivery.

Wisdom2Action and NACY are launching this project to build capacity and sustainability within the youth serving sector across the country to support a range of youth engagement and youth-led models. We will create social impact through innovative and emerging practices for young people and the programs that serve them that are driven by youth creation, leadership and engagement.
