What others say

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

—Henry Giroux, McMaster University

Adam is one of the most knowledgable people in the world regarding student voice and youth rights… I highly recommend him as a presenter and a writer in our field.

—Dana Mitra, Penn State University

We engaged Adam to provide guidance for a new, large-scale youth initiative. After informing our design of the program, he delivered a compelling keynote address for a conference attended by seven hundred elected officials from rural communities across North Carolina. He also 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; adapted the program to complex situations statewide; 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, Senior Vice President, North Carolina Rural Economic Development Center

Adam is a great facilitator and leader of youth and adults! Easy to work with, focused on a clear message and adaptable in every situation. It was a pleasure to work with Adam. He is committed to youth development and knows how to navigate change while remaining edgy enough to appeal to young people. Adam will do excellent work for your next event or any long-term development work.
