Document A describes the major elements of Wiggle Room that fill in the missing pieces from today’s youth engagement and program development. Wiggle Room’s multi-dimensional process moves youth work beyond a one-size–fits–all approach increasing the likelihood that we will reach those youth who need us desperately, but often remain unknown to adults. Wiggle Room’s unique elements include:
- Engaging teens based on a broader definition of at-risk youth;
- Coaching at-risk youth based on this broader definition;
- Building effective youth programs with an understanding of the community’s stage of development; and
- Creating strong youth groups by responding thoughtfully to the behaviors of all at-risk youth at each stage of group development.
