Community-engaged researchers often struggle to engage young people or community members with the data analysis part of the research process. In this talk, the presenters will share their work implementing Youth GO, a five-step participatory approach for engaging young people (and adults) in creating and organizing qualitative data in a way that is accessible and feasible within most community and practice settings.

Topics of discussion will include: 

  • A background and overview of the Youth GO approach 
  • Strategies for in-person and virtual implementation
  • Lessons learned from implementing the Youth GO approach with diverse populations, including youth living in low-income communities and sexual and gender minority youth
