The Journal of Youth Engagement is a forum of ideas and dialogue on Inspired Engagement. Join the conversation by submitting your article on the strategies and methodologies you are experimenting with to engage youth in your community.

This month, we check in with some of our authors to see how their work has evolved since they wrote for the Journal of Youth Engagement.

Are you experimenting in your community? Implementing new ideas with your teens? Are you deeply passionate about an area of your work with young people? The Journal of Youth Engagement is now accepting submissions for the summer and fall editions. Submit your idea and a member of our team will work with you to craft it for publication.
