It adds indispensable dimensions of fascination, magic and adventure. Both is needed!
Here is how we boost local youth leadership
activate local youth
through experience of hero*ine peer role models + combined with access to actions, coaches and support networks, so that inspired youth can self-organize (you need not babysit them)

set up a Poster Exhibit
on teen hero*ines + youth leadership essentials. Will you add music, films, your presence with a stand, to inspire, raise funds … ?
This creates long-term presence and reaches 100s at workplace, family restaurants, cafes, libraries, museums, community centres, organic stores, parks, schools, cinemas, waterfronts, construction site fences …
