These projects empower young people while at the same time enabling them to access and learn from the life experience and expertise of adults. 7) Young people-initiated and directed Young people initiate and direct a project or program. Adults are involved only in a supportive role. 6) Adult-initiated, shared decisions with young people Projects or programs are initiated by adults but the decision-making is shared with the young people. 5) Consulted and informed Young people give advice on projects or programs designed and run by adults. The young people are informed about how their input will be used and the outcomes of the decisions made by adults. 4) Assigned but informed Young people are assigned a specific role and informed about how and why they are being involved. 3) Tokenism Young people appear to be given a voice, but in fact have little or no choice about what they do or how they participate. 2) Decoration Young people are used to help or "bolster" a cause in a relatively indirect way, although adults do not pretend that the cause is inspired by young people. 1) Manipulation Adults use young people to support causes and pretend that the causes are inspired by young people.
