In this webinar, Youth MOVE National cover the value of youth and young adult participation in advising and decision-making at the organizational level, and how the need for a defined set of best practices and an assessment of the extent to which these are in place, led to the development of the Youth/Young Adult Voice at the Agency Level (Y-VAL) Assessment and Technical Assistance tools.

Presenters review the eight themes explored in the Y-VAL tool and explain how these themes can provide a framework for key indicators of meaningful and successful Youth/Young Adult engagement. Examples and take-home strategies are reviewed.
