New Webinar on Character Skills & Civic Engagement in Young People

Roots of Engaged Citizenship ProjectJoin us next week for The Roots of Engaged Citizenship: How Youth Build Character and Civic Skills, a free webinar.

Explore findings from the Roots of Engaged Citizenship Project and learn about how good citizenship is rooted in young people’s character strengths, developmental competencies, and supportive contexts.

Webinar participants will discover concrete ways to support the civic engagement of young people. Drawing from this multi-phased mixed methods study of more 3,000 young people in grades 4-12 and their parents, this webinar will:

  • Explore what we know about the civic lives of young people
  • Share findings about the civic values, behaviors, skills, and character strengths reported on by young people and their parents
  • Identify strategies that parents, teachers, and youth development professionals can use to promote positive character strengths and civic engagement

This webinar will feature the project’s lead researchers: Amy Syvertsen, Ph.D., Director of Applied Quantitative Research, Search Institute; Laura Wray-Lake, Ph.D., Assistant Professor of Psychology, University of Rochester; and Aaron Metzger, Ph.D., Associate Professor of Life-Span Developmental Psychology, West Virginia University.

The webinar begins at 12:00 PM CDT on Wednesday, June 3rd.
