Project-Based Learning & Its Value to You ~110 Marcum 9a-5p~
Project Based Learning has become an essential arrow in the quiver of youth development and education. But are we doing it right? So often, when they’re leading projects youth choose to take action and make a difference in the world around them. They want the vibrance and vitality of leading change, creating difference and fostering transformation in their own lives and the lives of their families, communities and the world. That’s a tremendous opportunity! Think of the differences we could make as adult allies if we simply made space for young people to lead the projects they learn from, allowing them to create positive, powerful change in the world around us! Wow! Exclamation points! How can project-based learning be a part of your youth led program. Adam Fletcher
