Speaking Truth to Youth

Our Speaking Truth to Youth short video series offers both youth and adults the opportunity to hear directly from AWTT portrait subjects - what led them to become activists, what guides them, where they find hope and courage, and what advice they have for young people today.

AWTT’s living portrait subjects share the essence of who they are and what feeds their souls. They say it best:

  • “Have a soft heart and a tough skin.”
  • “Open your eyes, be astonished, do something.”
  • “Know the difference between right and wrong and act accordingly.”
  • “Love is what we need to create the world we want to inhabit.”

"We use the Speaking Truth to Youth videos as a core part of our expedition so that kids can really get a sense of what activists do…I think it helps open their minds to be aware that they can make change in their community and gives them some idea of how other people might’ve made those changes in their community."
