It is imperative to bring young people into the conversation when we are making decisions about their world. Young people are the experts on their experiences and should be used as resources. On this episode of Third Space Podcast Rosalind Wiseman and Tré Garnett talk about the power of admitting when adults are wrong and opening up the conversation.
From race and allyship to school shootings and protests, listen to their discussion on how to have truly difficult conversations with young people.
