Community is an action word. It’s about power and influence, connection, encouragement, and hope. I believe in the potential of our young people. So I created this interactive talk to encourage adults to take action for youth success in their communities.

It will be a look at how we can leverage our individual and collective efforts toward positive change and social impact on our youth. From the little things we can do in our everyday lives, to big ideas that have an impact on policy and programs.

This talk will be inspiring and thought-provoking for all who attend, with practical actionable steps to help create change for the betterment of our children and communities.
