In communities across the country, there is seldom an issue that is of greater importance than meeting the needs of young people. All too often, however, young people themselves are left out of these discussions. AmericaSpeaks works with communities and youth service organizations to engage young people in identifying the most important challenges facing them. AmericaSpeaks also works with communities to address the complicated and difficult issue of education reform and how to ensure that community priorities for addressing educational needs are met.
