In this talk, Dr. Straub will explore a variety of ways that teachers, parents, and community members can empower children and youth to take an active role in their community. What does a good citizen look like in 2021? In what ways might your child contribute to making this world a better place? How might you support the children and youth in your life to think critically about the issues and events that surround their world and help them make good decisions?
