Young people, equipped with hearts, hands, and hammers, are a hugely untapped source of potential energy in our communities. Having taught design and building to young people for nearly 10 years, and having built full-scale architecture alongside high school students and young girls, Emily Pilloton believes that public education can be re-oriented around audacious, creative projects. As the voices of our young people are more important and louder than ever, it is vital that we give them the (literal and metaphorical tools) to transform our communities and become formidable creative leaders in school and into their own futures.
