"I have always been a ‘people person’ and ‘problem solver’ so, naturally working in public service was the right fit. I genuinely enjoy empowering residents and allowing the opportunities for their voice to be heard." - Marquita Mbonu

IAP2 May Learning Webinar
Tuesday, May 14, 2019, 11:00 AM - 12:30 PM (PDT)
In an era where citizens are increasingly empowered to shape their cities, youth are still overlooked, undervalued, and often included only as an afterthought. Even when engaged, youth inclusion and participation is often "tokenistic" and "transactional". As a result, youth are the most untapped resource in addressing our cities’ sustainability challenges.
This session critically examines the underpinning theory and systemic barriers that continue to exclude youth participation, resulting in civic disengagement, lack of trust, and significant missed opportunities.

In the 2018 IAP2 USA National Dialogue, we hope to learn what P2 practitioners and other community engagement professionals say about the P2 practices currently being used in these projects and how the public can be engaged more successfully in the future. Over the coming year, we want to learn how the revived spirit of "localism" in large and small communities across the country is impacting decision-making where we live and work.
Monthly Learning Webinars give IAP2 members a chance to hear about ideas, trends, technologies and approaches that can enhance their practice. Our presenters also provide links and other collateral material to help promote your professional development!
