Share this with all the schools, please

In a recent post about the start of a new school year, Glennon shares a great story about a teacher who understands the importance of connection. It’s a message that is at the core of what we do at Youth Frontiers – inspiring connection and building community. Enjoy her post, reprinted here with her permission:READ MORE
