Finding concise, practical information focused on how to increase the power, purpose and belonging of young people can be hard. The Freechild Institute shares our guide to the Firestarter Youth Power Program for FREE to help youth workers, teachers and others do exactly that!
The Firestarter Guidebook has four parts:
- Inspiration – Explores why young people should care about changing the world around them. By highlighting the issues facing youth today and the words of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., this section challenges young people to become invested in their own lives and their community’s future.
- Awareness Raising – Encourages young people to examine their surroundings to determine what needs to change. This section showcases the issues that young people are addressing through action, including homelessness, anti-youth sentiment, and more.
- Skill-Building – Identifies how change happens by assessing where youth are now and where they can go, both individually and as members of their larger communities. This section emphasizes personal ownership by encouraging community investment in young people.
- Action Planning – Directs young people through a series of tangible steps to design and implement their activities. Features a practical, hands-on tool for action planning and tools.
