Youth Advisory Group
We are connecting with children, youth, parents and organizations in our district to get a better understanding of the Out-of-School Time needs for children and youth in our district. We are gathering feedback through community engagement activities (surveys, discussions, community gatherings and focus groups) in order to inform the District’s goals for high-quality youth programs.
The Youth Advisory Group is made up of adults and youth from D1CC who represent the broader D1 community. The committee meets every few weeks, and is creating a plan to help inform the development of the community survey and outreach. Adults are volunteers. Youth between the ages of 12-20 and are eligible to receive a small stipend and/or transportation assistance.
Members are D1CC stakeholders who can help spread the word about the research project, and can encourage participation by children, youth and families.
We are still looking for advisory group youth!!
● Understand that their role is representative of the needs of the greater D1CC community-beyond their own family/organization/school.
● Serve as a resource by providing input and contact details for local organizations, groups, and individuals.
● Share their personal knowledge and experience in the community with the staff and consultant.
● Attend at least one of the two community meetings that will be held to gather input or share findings.
● Understand that the purpose of the study is not to create a program or project, but to gather data that can inform decisions being made about D1CC needs through data.
● Commit to attending all six meetings over the next 9 months.
