your voice can change the world.png

Youth voice is a powerful tool that isn't used or listened to nearly enough! We are so excited to announce that our Youth Advisory Board will be launching a new live video series called Real Talk. 

Throughout these live Instagram and YouTube videos, we will interview other teens, professionals in the field, activists, teachers, and others who are undoubtedly making a huge impact on this world. 

We are hoping to launch this series in September. Please check back for more information!
