Asset No. 7 of 40 | Community Values Youth

 Empowerment

Community Values Youth | Young person perceives that adults in the community value youth.

TAKE ACTION:

  • When young workers at a grocery store, drug store, or fast food restaurant wait on you, greet them in a friendly manner and compliment them on something (their good work, their unusual hairstyle).
  • Be patient with young workers!  Don’t show irritation if they make a mistake.
  • Celebrate a young employee’s new job with a lunch date and a tour of your workplace.  Talk about your job and the job he or she has been hired to do.  Encourage lots of questions.
