Abstract #269
What Youth Need to do Well! Lessons From Youth
Presenter: Mallery Denny
"The hand-drum is the beat of the soul; the eagle is the guide through our path; we unite as a team of speakers, as we mumble but never stumble. We are our people." These words are included in a mural on a community wall in Eskasoni, Canada. The mural shows what we have learned through the Spaces and Places Research Project (S&P) about what young people like us, in OU.R. Eskasoni, need to do well. We use the mural to share this knowledge with our community -- the people who support us to do better. Join us at the Spaces and Places poster display where you can see the mural and talk with us about what we believe young people in rural communities, and elsewhere, need to do well. We will also share with researchers what they need to know to do better research with young people like us. We will tell them what we enjoyed and found useful about participating in research; and what we didn't enjoy, what should have been different. We'll let them know what was hard, but what motivated us to stick it out, and care about the research project and how it could help us, and the young people who come after us.
