Civic Engagement

Civic engagement intentionally connects young people to community-based organizations and builds capacity to address needs and issues that affect youth through youth/adult partnerships, coalitions, technical support, and professional development. Extension provides opportunities for young people to participate in and shape processes in municipal, county, and non-governmental decision-making spaces.
