The Policing Project Youth Engagement Guide Book
Public safety leaders have long recognized robust youth engagement can lead to overall stronger police-community relations, yet few programs prioritize youth voice and experience, or engage them in collaborative problem-solving. The Police-Youth Engagement Program is designed to engage young people and police in respectful two-way conversation on policing issues that affect youth every day.
1). Discussion of the program design, including facilitation methods to successfully localize and adapt the program model.
2). Tips for engaging youth around public policy, including lesson plans, a model scope, sequence with Common Core overlap and discussion of common challenge areas.
3). Sample assessment survey to evaluate the effectiveness of the program.
