There are many strategies for getting youth involved in community
and citizen science in ways that promote learning. Through
in-depth case studies of diverse YCCS projects, we have
documented youth-centered practices that are effective in
promoting learning and environmental science agency—the ability
to use experiences in citizen science and environmental science
to make positive change in one’s life and community.
On this page you’ll find resources to help you apply these ideas
in your work. Check out our case
studies to see examples of how these key practices have been
implemented by educators.
