If you work with youth aged 14-24, you have an opportunity to support young people during a period of tremendous growth, development, and transition. In your role(s), you can help to guide youth to make decisions that will support their health and well-being now and as they transition into adulthood and greater independence. This module introduces motivational interviewing skills and strategies that can help those working with youth to engage them in conversations about their health and well-being. Engaged youth are those that feel valued and empowered to make their own decisions about their well-being, engage in healthy conversations, seek support, and share information with peers.
