Program: Podcasts to the President

071005_ObamaYouth_vl-verticalThe Harold Washington Library Centre in Chicago is helping students with a podcast to the President. The students will be invited to express via the podcast what they believe has changed or still needs to change in America. They will be using the thisibelieve.com website to post their podcast.

I think this is a very innovative program. While perhaps not everyone would find this appealing, it does give socially aware teens the opportunity to speak their mind and express their concerns. Giving a voice to youth is so incredibly important and I tip my hat to the Chicago library for initiating this.
