In this episode, I talk with Martin Rafferty, CEO of Youth ERA, a national organization that empowers youth to achieve their greatest potential. We discuss Youth ERA’s unique approach to youth leadership, drop-in centers, and training for adults who want to support youth voice. Martin explains how Youth ERA responds to school shootings as well as the stigma surrounding mental health. He also shares his powerful journey of how he got into this work. I hope you enjoy the conversation.
