Talking to young people, there is something magical about hearing their dreams.
“What’s your dream job?” is a question that may stress out a soon-to-be college graduate, but for high school students, it’s often a welcome push. An invitation to think about your future. A chance to be treated as a full human, not a child.
They have big, sophisticated ideas, and often no outlet for making them a reality.
Imagine if we just listened deeply. Heard their dreams, then spent all our energy helping to make them happen.
Isn’t that what it’s all about?
