Youth Wishes for the New Year!

The start of the new year brings news beginnings and a chance for a fresh start! Teen Feed’s Support Coordinators took time to connect with youth to ask them what their wish is for the coming year. Our intention is to inspire youth to think past today and dream about their futures. It also helps us to identify ways in which we can guide these resilient, remarkable, and hopeful young people to lean forward into their new beginnings. It is our privilege to share a selection of youth wishes for 2015.
