National Support System

I believe that we are here to create and be a part of a national support system that ensures that youth voice is not only heard but elevated and protected. We are here to learn from each other. I’m taking it all in right now but the conversations we’ve had so far have been incredibly inspiring. I see a lot of ways that I personally can help other groups. I’m more excited though for the different lessons, ideas, and support that the other sites will share with each other. With the experience that I have working with revitalizing education, dealing with and addressing state receiverships, promoting literacy, and using various art mediums as a way to create awareness, I personally connect with the missions and goals that the ATL and Allendale youth have presented. I think that the work I’m doing with Elevated Thought and ABL really has some synergy with where they want to do and go with their sites. I’m excited to get to know all sites a little bit better and build connections over the next couple of days and year.
