Youth Engagement

Want to help your students take action and make positive change in the community? Increase their self-awareness and leadership skills? Gain a more global perspective?

We’re here to help. At the Action Center, our Youth Engagement Team partners with Portland educators and other youth-serving adults to craft custom programs to support your educational goals. It starts with getting to know you and your objectives, followed by a creative collaboration where we explore how we can best support your group throughout the school year.
