With television and Internet media telling us all what to think, what we want and where we should be five, ten or even twenty years from now, it's easy for everyone to loose sight of what really matters.
This is sometimes especially true for youth, tangled in expectations and voices of family, friend's, celebrities and peers competing with their own sense of purpose.
Area of Study editors have compiled a list of six perceivably valuable ' Voices Matter' videos for 2020 - voices that stand out from the blah blah as having something worthwhile to say to young people about matters impacting youth transitioning to independence.
If you have created a valuable resource or know of a valuable resource that speaks to a youth matter, please share your link and we'll consider it for our 2021 compilation.
