As you watch the skill video below, think about these questions:

How does the youth facilitator provide feedback to the participants? How does this impact the participants?

What does the youth facilitator say at this point? How might that impact the participants?

The youth facilitator asks the participant a question. How does she word it? How does this affect the youth participants?

What does the youth facilitator say at this point? How does that help youth make connections?

What do the youth facilitators do - or don't do - that allows the youth to be in control of the activity? 

What are elements that make youth engaged in the learning in this activity?

If you were focusing on giving youth control, how would you facilitate this activity differently? What would you do the same?
