So encouraging! ,

Great Resource for Young Youth Workers

I cannot say how encouraging this podcast has been! It has a lot of practical advice, it helps you ask good questions, and it features the real voices of teenagers talking about the different topics. This is one podcast that I try to intentionally take time to listen to, because it’s always so worthwhile.
