This chapter presents educational engagement as entangled with the dominant narratives shaping young peoples' opportunities in, out of, and beyond school years. It conceptualizes a dialogic view of educational engagement against a backdrop of rapid globalization and marketization. The chapter argues that if socially just education is to have force and meaning, it must involve pedagogy directed to dialogic engagement. Changing Worlds is an iterative website, which encourages pedagogical engagements that bring students to ask generative questions about their worlds. The Changing Worlds project is presented as an example of how meaningful educational engagements might be envisioned. The chapter concludes by offering those wishing to embark on community educative programs, ways of thinking about strategizing their pedagogic interactions with young people. Particularly, where socially transformative outcomes are hoped for that might lead to higher community participation in future-focused planning, employment, education, or decision-making.
