Youth, through service, engagement, and advocacy are crucial to building a dynamic, inclusive, and forward looking urban environment. Students minoring in Youth and Community Engagement will understand the social, economic, political, and cultural aspects of urban communities including the experiences and challenges of families and youth. Students in the minor will actively engage in servicelearning experiences with K-12 schools and community organizations in diverse urban contexts. Through their own service-learning experiences, students will learn about the potential and challenges of the pedagogy of civic engagement while they develop the organizational and leadership skills to address issues facing urban youth, schools, and communities.
Students seeking the minor must successfully complete 9 hours of elective courses selected with the approval of an advisor, along with 9 semester hours of core courses. Other courses, including transfer courses, that address youth and families, urban issues, or urban education may be substituted for electives with the approval of an advisor.
