Y-VOC Assessment

Assessment of Youth/Young Adult Voice on Committees and Councils (Y-VOC)

The Y-VAL (Y-VOC) is intended to measure support for the meaningful participation of youth and young adults in advising and decision making roles at the agency level (committee/council level). As developers of this assessment, Youth MOVE National and Pathways RTC are mission driven to support this meaningful participation. The Y-VAL is a tested and validated tool that can assist local agencies with assessing current efforts underway for meaningful youth engagement. The Y-VOC is currently undergoing a validation study.

The Y-VAL/Y-VOC assessments may be used in some of the following ways:

  • Furthering your own understanding of where your program is with meaningful youth engagement
  • A data informed approach to guide to your work in developing youth driven practices
  • A framework for youth program development
