Putting Youth at the Center of Efforts to Re-Design Learning Opportunities

December 10, 2015 - 2:00 pm to December 10, 2015 - 3:00 pm

Authentically involving young people in efforts to re-imagine learning in school and afterschool can be transformative, but it’s not easy to do.

In this Readiness Roundtable, Karen Pittman talked with TJ Delahanty, manager of Out-of-School Time Initiatives at Metro United Way in Louisville, and Norman Harris, a young person from Memphis, Tennessee. Both cities’ efforts to rethink expanded learning opportunities in order to close equity gaps were featured in the recent America’s Promise report, Expanded Learning, Expanded Opportunity: How Four Communities Are Working to Improve Education for Their StudentsLearn about the impact of young people’s involvement in the work, and how to more meaningfully involve students and other youth in efforts in your community.  

Listen to a recording of the conversation.
