Empowering young people means adults need to step back and serve as youth allies. Each encounter with a young person is a cross-cultural experience; only a young person intrinsically knows youth culture. Yet, generalizing all teens as if they share common opinions is risky as each young person is unique. A committed adult advocate will encourage youth self-advocacy and autonomy. This webinar facilitates a conversation with a panel of young people and explore the best way to inspire their self-advocacy. Their voices matter. Let them be your teachers!
