About the Podcast

Reimagining Youth Work
Exploring how to re-think and re-make systems that serve young people.
The Reimagining Youth Work podcast is an exciting, new, and thoughtful exploration of how our world is impacting young people, what adults can do to re-think their work with young people, and how we can all work together to re-make the systems that serve young people. The podcast is hosted by veteran educator, mentoring expert, and executive director of the Youth Mentoring Action Network (YMAN), Dr. Torie Weiston-Serdan. The podcast is recorded in both audio and video formats.

Like the work of YMAN, the podcast is part of our mission to re-imagine and re-make youth-led and multigenerational spaces in which healthy dialogue, community-engaged education, and civic engagement create equitable environments for youth to thrive.
