This week I spent some time with some pretty insightful students. Mrs. Romero’s Life Smarts class at Los Alamos High School was gracious enough to have me over to speak about Assets.
It actually turned into a well rounded discussion about youth. We discussed how they can contribute to decisions that affect their community.
As adults we need to give serious thought to seeking input from groups of average students. By average students, I’m not talking about education, finances or anything that has a connotation of being less than great.
I mean contacting the average Joe, the man on the street, every man. These students don’t necessarily belong to a group, club, sport or organization. They are just as insightful, just as educated and just as reasonable as their higher profiled counterparts.
We need to make opportunities for them to honestly provide input.
We need to communicate with them on their level. Once again, I don’t mean anything lesser by that statement.
It means conversing with them in the technological forms we may not be used to. It means hearing things that might surprise us. It means meeting them where they congregate.
Another group I crossed paths with were the Youth Mobilizers.
