Download: Listening to Young People

Listening is extremely effective skill in our work with young people. An adult can begin to break down barriers by listening well to young people, and listening can be used to help young people build relationships with each other. If we can learn to listen to young people with the understanding that, given enough attention and encouragement, they truly have the best answers, we can help them make permanent changes in their lives.

In the corporate world, profiling is key to increased productivity and we are encouraged to build on the areas of our roles that come naturally and that flow, these are always the tasks that we’re particularly good at. Giving teenagers this same knowledge, as they are about to make the most important decisions of their lives is the best thing you can do for your child.
