Are You Really Listening?

Are you really listening?

For youth-serving organizations, community collaborators, frontline providers, mentors and other youth supporters, keeping students in school and on-track may be a challenging endeavor without the benefit of having youth voice in the discussion. Through their voices, young people can help guide solutions and improve connections that help caring adults better understand how to meet their needs. 

But what to do if all you get is a shrug of the shoulders?
