ACT for Youth Center of Excellence
Let's face it, young people are often overlooked. I guess adults don't remember that it's frustrating to be ignored. Young people have some really brilliant ideas, but if no one pays attention, there's no way for them to be heard. That's why adults need to let young people be more involved and have a greater say in how things work.
