When a young person is engaged, he or she is actively involved cognitively, emotionally, and behaviorally. Research has found powerful links between youths’ levels of engagement and their achievement and persistence in school. By frequently interacting with youth to spark their interest and offering activities that are appropriately challenging, staff at high-quality programs can help promote youth engagement.
