How is the community showing youth they are valued?
How can we create more opportunities for youth to have a say in what happens in our communities?
How can we create opportunities for young people to be heard?
The 2015 Empower Coös Youth campaign partnered with students from the Youth Leadership Through Adventure a program of the North Country Health Consortium and local high schools to produce materials intended to encourage youth, families, and civic and community leaders to read the Carsey Institute for Public Policy research on Coös youth, discuss the challenges and strengths it reveals, and to consider innovative ways to engage and support youth in the region.
Special thanks to students and advisors from Berlin, Gorham, Groveton, and White Mountains Regional High Schools as well as students from Colebrook Academy for their leadership over the course of this project.
