About the Event

Community-Based Research Canada presents “Young People in Community-Based Research”: our winter 2024 e-learning series. This series will highlight community-based research projects, models, and processes that exemplify participatory engagement of young people in research. An important hallmark of community-based research is that the research is participatory, meaning it involves authentic and meaningful participation of stakeholders in all phases of the research. When research has impacts on the lives of young people, participatory research would involve authentically engaging young people in the planning, design, implementation, and dissemination of research. Within this series we will hear about youth-engaged models and processes for research, as well as research projects that have been driven by young people.

Webinar:

In this presentation, we will discuss how youth voice has been centered in the evaluation of the WiseGuyz program, with a focus on our use of arts-based evaluation processes. We will also discuss challenges in this work. WiseGuyz is a gender-transformative healthy relationships promotion and violence prevention program for adolescent boys developed by the Centre for Sexuality in Calgary, AB. All WiseGuyz evaluation is conducted through a collaborative community-university partnership model.
