Engaging Youth Within Our Communities

This toolkit was published by Boscoville 2000.


This guide is intended for community and organizational actors who would sincerely like to integrate young people ages 12 to 25 within their communities by allowing them to actively participate in decisions affecting them and allowing them to play a more influential role. Particularly, this guide is for communities that would like to:

  • acknowledge young people as co-builders of society
  • encourage young people to express themselves
  • support young people’s leadership development

The approach of this guidebook and the accompanying tools are anchored in the experiences acquired through working with youth and the participatory research, observations, and assessments gathered through a demonstration project improved while participating at YouthScape, carried out by Boscoville 2000 in Rivière-des-Prairies, since 2001. YouthScape is a Pan Canadian initiative that engages ‘at-risk’ youth in community building.
