The Voice Of Opportunity Youth podcast serves as a platform to elevate the voices of young people involved with YouthBuild and shine a light on the positive change being made in their lives. Aged 16-24, YouthBuild students work to reclaim ownership of their lives, their education, and their futures through grit and growth. We look to share the stories of these young people and to prove to them that their voices deserve to be heard and can change the world. This podcast has been funded in part by ArtsinStark.
