Resources

Connect Magazine

Connect is a newsletter that has appeared six times a year since late 1979. It documents, resources and supports student participation approaches in primary and secondary schools - in classroom practice, in student organisations (SRCs and JSCs) and between schools through networks and training. It also publishes a range of books about aspects of student participatory practice, including about Student Action Teams, Student Councils, and school engagement.

Diversity Dolls

Diversity Dolls are dolls that are specially designed to present social diversity and equity issues to children.

International Journal of Equity and Innovation in Early Childhood (IJEIEC)

The International Journal of Equity and Innovation in Early Childhood (IJEIEC) aims to explore and advance early childhood education and thinking about childhood by publishing work that illustrates, extends, inspires and provokes innovative approaches. 2013 will be the final volume published of the journal.

Podcasts

Podcasts from YRC events available to download.

Youth Participation Model

The Youth Participation Model framework is designed to assist those planning for child and youth participation.

It directs attention to six interconnected domains that are relevant to all modes of participation: Purpose, Positioning, Process, Protection, Perspectives and Power Relations. Taken together, a focus on these six domains can help you to think critically and practically about how to work with (rather than just for or about) children and young people.
