We measure success a number of different ways, but by most measures this conference was a success! It was wonderful to meet up with long time colleagues from the Seattle area and fantastic to meet up with many new people who will be doing the work of building relationships and creating opportunities for young people to learn and educate themselves!
I can’t wait to travel to NYC, Oakland, Denver, and Boise to name a few places.
The take away for me, relationships. Both personal and professional are critical for youth success. As professionals we need to cultivate our relationships in-order to be successful at building relationships with youth. As we respect youth and hear youth voice in the way we interact with our personal and professional relationships we will be better prepared to encourage youth success.
