Youth Engagement Training Workshop
Arthur has delivered youth engagement training workshops across Canada, New Zealand, Australia and the USA - including one en français dans Montréal! - where the feedback confirms that this training is not only immediately useful, but presented in an engaging manner.
The Student Leadership in Active School Travel Training Workshop is specifically focussed on reducing car-trips to school. With attention to the 'why' and 'what' of youth engagement, we quickly advance to the 'how' so that Adult Facilitators & their Supervisors can envision how to plan and deliver a program in their community.
This hands-on workshop covers theory and inter-active simulation of child- and youth-engagement to recruit, train and support student leadership to promote walking, cycling, transit and carpooling to school. Filled with examples from student leadership successes across Canada, New Zealand, Australia and the USA, these strategies and tools will build from participants' existing experience-level to expand their skills and comfort with taking action.
Who is this for?
Professionals and community practitioners in the fields of active school travel, road safety, health promotion, environmental education, climate action, transportation demand management and community planning. A questionnaire is sent out in advance in order to gauge participants’ existing knowledge and so that content can be directed towards local goals, objectives and case studies.
