Focus groups are an excellent way to gather non-scripted information from community members and to engage young people in a meaningful way. They can be a particularly useful strategy for understanding the “why” behind common norms, attitudes, and perceptions. This workshop is appropriate for youth who will be engaging in focus group efforts and their adult allies.
In this workshop, you can expect to:
- Learn specific information on strategies used to implement a successful focus group.
- Build skills in group management and critical thinking.
- Plan to conduct an interactive focus group session.
- Learn how to develop questions for focus groups, interviewing and facilitation techniques.
