The teachers whose students use Youth Voices -- and meet each week on this webcast -- often talk about “taking it global.” And this is a key value advocated by Jeff Lebow.
The idea for this webcast came when a teacher new to our work together contacted us saying that she was thinking of having her students get involved with both Youth Voices and Taking it Global (TIG). This teacher, Melissa Lynn Pomerantz, a 10 grade English teacher from St. Louis joined us on the show.
Listen to this podcast if you would also like to learn more about Taking It Global. Perhaps like us, you will want to learn how we can broaden our -- and our students -- horizons beyond these United States.

Hello and welcome. This show is our 60th show.We invited Scott Rigsby to join us. He is a motivational speaker and you will enjoy and stay on the edge of your seat throughout. I've never seen the chat room so quiet and enthralled. Thanks Scott for a great show, thanks to the chat room too! Plus thanks for sticking with us with the interruptions on the stream. Not sure what was happening, but we kept plugging away and the whole hour is recorded for your listening enjoyment.
