We often celebrate the potential and promise of children and adolescents in American society. If we believe youth are a force for the betterment of society, how do we empower them?

Eric Johnson (RTI International) and Chris Suggs (student) join us to share how their media, research, and advocacy initiatives are working to empower young people around the world.
