Youth In Action

When our class went to Youth in Action I have to say that it was an experience that I never had before. In all my time in school I never had the opportunity or have seen the students take over the classroom and show the adults/leaders in the classroom what to do. These students that we were with were very sophisticated and mature individuals. You would never know going into it that these were high school kids if you didn't have the prior knowledge. We separated into two groups doing the same activities and to get the students direction, as well as asking questions to have discussion after the activity was very unique and beneficial because it just had a whole different aspect on the activity. I feel as if students who are engaged in this program have the power of voice to acknowledge how kids can learn from their peers. Doing this may help a student appreciate something that they never thought they would and could change their total opinion on something because of the way it was addressed by the youth. Some people learn better from hearing different voices and approaches from people that they can relate to.
