The Teen Advisory Group (TAG) research project of the Accelerate Hub works directly with adolescents to co-develop research priorities and methods that are responsive to adolescent development-related needs and interests. TAG work is guided by principles of meaningful inclusion of adolescents at all stages of the research cycle. This work is grounded in participatory and emancipatory methodologies. This video features footage from camps with TAG in Western Cape, South Africa and Kisumu, Kenya. Previous TAGs were based in Uganda and Sierra Leone.
