“Adam Fletcher’s work is especially relevant in getting young people to participate in the realms of politics and critical education.”—Henry Giroux

“We engaged Adam on two occasions to provide guidance for a new, large-scale youth initiative. The first time, he delivered a compelling keynote address for a conference attended by seven hundred elected officials from rural communities across North Carolina. The second time, he authored a publication on how to start a youth program in a rural community and served as the lead trainer for a workshop based on that publication. His talents are many—He is an original thinker; delivers strong content based on good science; is a highly capable writer; can adapt to any situation; and is both a talented speaker and educator/trainer. His enthusiasm is out the roof, and he is liked equally well by both youth and adults.”—Elaine Matthews, former Senior Vice President, North Carolina Rural Economic Development Center.
