PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Have you ever looked at the faces of your middle or high school students and seen disengaged or problem students incapable of independent work?Increase the engagement level of your students by using Youth Empowerment Theory, which challenges educators to learn the individual needs and contributions of each student. Learn to start best practices and strategies of YET in your classroom.

The main tenets of YET include creating a welcoming environment, facilitating meaningful participation, distributing power equitably in
adult–youth relationships, and engaging youth in creative solutions to sociopolitical processes (Jennings, Parra-Medina, Hilfinger Messias, & McLoughlin, 2006). Higher empowerment, measured
in terms of leadership skills, knowledge of significant sociopolitical policies and procedures, and belief in one’s contributions as meaningful, has been correlated with a reduction in risk
activities such as drug abuse and dropping out of school (Peterson, Peterson, Agre, Christens, & Morton, 2011).
