Approximately 40 in-person attendees and 20 online participated in the Youth Engagement CoP Meeting on November 1, 2017. The meeting recording can be accessed here.
While this was an event for the Youth Engagement CoP, we felt that the presentations were relevance for other CoPs too, in particular, Creative’s presentation is very relevant for the Youth in Peace and Security CoP members, and the TAAP Toolkit will be relevant for all CoPs.
As an introduction to this year’s CoP theme, ‘Diversity and Inclusion,’ World Learning presented their Transforming Agency, Access, and Power (TAAP) Inclusion Approach and forthcoming TAAP Toolkit.
TAAP helps practitioners design inclusive projects and programs and could be of use to all our communities of practice as we work to identify and reach marginalized communities. The TAAP Toolkit, expected to be released in early 2018, is designed for adaption in different environments and contexts and provides a framework and practical tools to integrate social inclusion in program design, implementation, and learning.
To wrap up the meeting, CoP members brainstormed specific goals, activities, and speakers for the upcoming year’s focus on youth diversity. CoP members provided thoughtful recommendations for actionable strategies for practitioners and researchers to intentionally and meaningfully engage marginalized and disadvantaged populations. Examples of these recommendations were: … Can we add two or three?
We look forward to prioritizing and implementing a selection of these activities with the CoP members during this fiscal year.
