Youth/Adult partnership has made me feel valued, respected, and heard both as a student, and as a person. It has given me an opportunity to practice life skills, like how to effectively communicate, facilitate and action plan. Youth/Adult partnership motivates me to become a better student and a more social and professional person.

Youth/Adult partnership recognizes the unique perspectives, skills and experiences that each group brings to the table. By fostering these partnerships, organizations and communities can empower young people to take an active role in shaping their future while also benefiting from the wisdom and experience of their co-workers.

Since being involved in Youth/Adult partnership, I feel more ready for life and my career. I believe implementing more Youth/Adult partnership in school will result in a generation of people ready to make the world a better place.
