Ever wonder why some young people vote and others don't? Our hosts pop up in every corner of San Anto to ask the young people everywhere about the issues that affect them the most, and why they do, or don’t vote. We share some laughs, get off topic sometimes, and learn some things together too. Community engagement is important. We GET It, and we’re Growing Empowered Together.
