Youth Participatory Action Research Presentation

Tuesday, May 30, 2017 - 1:15pm


Tuesday, May 30 at the Hotel RL Living Stage

The Participatory Action Research program (YPAR) at YWCA Olympia consists of young women who are yearning to make a change in their community. They have been working hard since December 2016 to research the obstacles to empowerment that girls and femmes face where we live. The YPAR team is excited to share their amazing new skills, research, and action plans with the community!

During the presentation, youth from the program will share stories about their experiences, introduce PAR methodology, and explain the ways they have used these methods to identify the barriers to female empowerment in their community. They will also share plans for the future of their research and seek feedback from other girls, femmes, and gender nonconforming youth in Thurston County.
