DC SCORES youth voices at the Kennedy Center

On June 9th a football framed freedom suite /peh-LO-tah/ premiered at the Kennedy Center for Performing Arts. This production celebrates a deep and personal devotion to the game of soccer. It is also a meditation on life as person of color in the United States. It is not one story but many, and the stories often leap beyond words into other forms of expression – dance, song, spoken-word poetry, and video montages.

Why I believe young people are key to leading change

This is the second blog in a new series of Q&As with young people who volunteer with Restless Development in Africa and Asia, we spoke to 23-year old Rakesh Kumar Gupta, a Restless Development India volunteer

“If I ruled the world, I’d free all my sons,” an excerpt from a 90s rap song by American rapper Nas states. Not riches. Not wealth. But the ultimate power – freedom.

But freedom itself doesn’t mean the right to do what we want. It is the power to do what we ought – put young people at the forefront of change and development in a changing world.

What is meaningful youth engagement?

Perhaps that’s a riddle for the youth sector. But when I asked a young volunteer what young people need, her answer was definitive: “motivation, good mentorship, opportunities, positive thinking, energy, and, mostly, a platform where they can experiment, experience, and learn.”

Does that ring a bell?
