Dr. Peter Benson has written a book called “Sparks” to help parents, coaches, teachers and neighbors ignite the passion of whatever is of interest to youth.
How often do we ask them to identify what brings them joy?
This week, Los Alamos Middle School went that extra mile to find out what their teens want to learn.
It’s an easy task actually – just ask. Our teenagers are ready, willing and able to name their interests and were tickled at the thought that someone would help them learn more about an area of interest.
The idea is to elevate those areas of interest with local resources. The goal is to build on their suggestions with hands – on activities and learning opportunities.
I often believe that we can get a lot accomplished if we could all be in the same room without an agenda.
That’s right, a free flowing dialogue with anyone who is interested in sharing ideas for the common good. This time the ideas originate with the youth and come to fruition with the help of the community.
So what is on the minds of local teens? Their interests are simple, really. They would like to know more about playing the guitar, gardening, knitting, martial arts, animals, etc.
