From the Editor
Exacerbated by the pandemic, violence, and more, young people have felt under attack for some time. The political situation, entrenched discord, and some decisions in America have added more stress. MENTOR, a historic advocate for youth voice and leadership, has increased its list of civics resources. Reading and understanding the Constitution, registering to vote if age permits, advocating in secondary school, college/CareerTech, and in the workforce, and then voting impacts the future. It's never too early to learn.
