This project will research knowledge mobilization in youth led groups. A tremendous amount of literature exists about the potential of young people as volunteers and the rich contributions that they can make to organizations and more importantly community. The linking of community development and youth development offers tremendous opportunities but is not without its challenges. The initial goal of this project was to create an online tool that would reflect best practices, research and innovative ideas around knowledge mobilization in youth-led groups.
With the changes in funding for CVI this online project was not possible, this report has been developed to reflect our research and some innovative ways to approaches to knowledge mobilization. This project focuses on youth and although we have not defined a specific age range the research looks at programs and research working with university-age volunteers.
