This concept is as simple as meaning youth where they are at and when they have the opportunity. Are we addressing the needs of all youth, not just those who show up? Who are we missing to be a part of the conversation?

By making sure that we not counting everyone at the table, instead making everyone at the table count we create an space that welcomes everyone and is representative of the community we are trying to reach. We do not have to be experts in understanding all cultures, but being open to learn and address youth culture is important in order to support them and create change.
