Saying YES to the Future

A wonderful thing happened the other month. At the beginning of December 2020, I took a position as CEO of a national nonprofit organization. For the first time in a decade, I’m working full time and loving it!

This organization is called Youth and Educators Succeeding, and it focuses on youth empowerment, leadership, and learning. Over the last 25 years, it’s helped more than 2,500 K-12 schools across the US and around the world transform the roles of students in schools.

Of course, I’m bringing my nameplate programs into the org. Freechild and SoundOut will have a a serious foothold in the new configuration of the nonprofit and I’m really excited.

The next steps are making themselves clear as I walk on. Today I’m in Seattle for a personal appointment after starting yesterday speaking at a conference in London. Tomorrow, who knows?!

Anyway it goes, I’m happy and satisfied with the goal I continue to pursue, to radically re-envisioning the roles of young people throughout society.

Forward! Wish me luck!
