    1. help them articulate what a better future might look like

      How do we let them know that their voices are needed and valued?

    2. adult leaders are looking in the wrong places,

      For me this speaks to the importance of meeting youth where they are (in digital spaces as well as emotionally/intellectually) and having a good sense of youth culture. Staying current and connected is a big challenge for educators, and by incorporating spaces that are currently being used by youth into our curriculum we can meet younger generations where they are and "speak their language".

    3. developed her voice by participating in a community of practice

      This feels critical to me and something that could be further explored here -- how Communities of Practice support leadership development and action (for youth as well as adults). I see this in my own work at the National Writing Project -- we work together as teachers and writers to develop our practice. And in the process become leaders who can act when/as needed.

      Lave and Wenger are important resources in this part of the discussion: http://infed.org/mobi/jean-lave-etienne-wenger-and-communities-of-practice/

    2. Along these lines

      The proceeding sentences here show an important framework around the work she is doing here.
