Making Leisure Matter: Promoting Meaningful Leisure Participation for Children and Youth in School, Clinic, and Community Settings (Webinar #3)
All children and youth have a right to participate in and enjoy healthy hobbies and interests. Participation in out-of-school leisure activities benefits youth socially, emotionally, physically, and academically.

Success stories of the impact of meaningful leisure participation in inclusive school and community settings for youth experiencing leisure deprivation will be shared.
