We are a collaborative of institutions and organizations committed to promoting positive youth outcomes and reducing risk. Our work is predicated on the fact that the most effective tools we have at our disposal are the important individuals in young peoples’ lives and the conversations that sustain and nurture those relationships. We are committed to inspiring and cataloging one million such meaningful conversations by 2020. We invite you to join the conversation!
