Younger Voices, Stronger Choices: Promise Project’s Guide to Forming Youth/Adult Partnerships
Loring Leifer, Michael McLarney
Along with important issues like liability, evaluation, and how to assess readiness, the book explores the important relationship issues that arise when young people and adults share control. Younger Voiceswas itself written by an adult and a young person, and includes e-mail they wrote to one another during the process of writing the book. The often-humorous letters put a human face on partnerships, and provide a glimpse into how attitudes change when young people and adults work together. This, along with practical tips and information will be a great benefit to board members, staff, and young people.
