Category: youth leadership
Last week, I facilitated a conversation with youth from one of our programs in Compton, California, and another in Preston, United Kingdom. More than 20 young people ages 11 through 19 participated, all with one thing in common: They are working to change the world right now.
I am a firm believer in the power of youth. Since I facilitated my first youth workshop in 1997, I have been an advocate for youth empowerment, routinely showing young people, youth workers, educators, administrators, politicians and parents the power, purpose and possibilities of youth.
