Increasingly, agencies and organizations that serve youth and young adults are seeking to partner with young people as they work to make their services more engaging and responsive. However, agencies often lack information about best practices for involving young people in these efforts. This webinar will describe the development and validation of the Youth/Young Adult Voice at the Agency Level (Y-VAL) assessment. The Y-VAL is intended to serve both as a guide to best practices and as a measure of the extent to which an agency is meaningfully supporting young people’s involvement in advising and decision making.
