Young people are experiencing the COVID-19 pandemic, along with less visible epidemics of loneliness, isolation, and institutional mistrust that have been at work in our culture for decades. This reality means that we need to rethink the traditional ways we have engaged younger generations meaningfully in schools, at home, at work, and in other parts of their lives. Instead of programs built around institutional structures, we must innovate ways of engaging young people around relationships and fostering a sense of belonging.

In this presentation Dr. Josh Packard, Executive Director of Springtide Research Institute, reveals what hundreds of interviews and over 20,000 survey responses from Gen Z can tell us about how to engage effectively, create meaning, and foster a sense of belonging that will help today’s students flourish.
