Limited Capacity seats available


For Youth-Adult Partner Teams:  1-2 educators/administrators and 1-2 students, max of 4 per district

In this workshop, youth-adult partner teams will explore why it matters that youth and adults are partners in learning and decision-making in our schools. This exploration will lay the foundation for a deeper dive into what this partnership looks and sounds like when authentically implemented.

Facilitators will review UP for Learning’s initiatives to provide a clearer picture of key components of partnership in action. Participants will engage in self-assessment to identify areas of strength and potential growth and use tools and strategies that ensure the integrity of true shared responsibility.

Teams will leave this session as capable creators and guardians of their own unique partnerships for their schools, developing an action plan informed by this sharpened vision of youth empowerment through partnership.
