Youth Engaged 4 Change (YE4C) is all about getting young adults excited and engaged with their communities. Many times, this means going out to our schools, local community organizations, and jobs to pursue our passions. But that is not the only way we can impact the world. What young people have to say is just as important as what we can do. Youth voices are powerful, and there are places to share them. After looking across the internet, I have selected a few blogs and forums that focus on young people and what we have to say.
School can be challenging, especially high school. You are learning various topics that cover many subjects. There are also numerous requirements needed to graduate like standardized exams that require a certain score to pass. For many of us, outside factors like family, finances, culture, and mental wellbeing make excelling at school even harder. Students who face challenges may stop talking to their peers, start missing school/class frequently, and even experience anxiety when they begin to fall behind. All of this together ends up affecting our performance.
