As they grow and change and move toward independence, school-age children and youth become very interested in planning and directing their own activities. This means it’s very important for staff to think of ways to involve them in program planning and implementation. By planning activities WITH children instead of FOR them and engaging them in creating the program environment, staff can help children develop a feeling of ownership of the program – a positive feeling that the program belongs to them.
