Asking For More

Ember's Philly weekend is based around a few relationships, one with friend and youth worker GM. As the lead team sat down to plan an out-of-normal-context, immersive serving experience, I was reminded of his haunting question - "What would it look like to help these students go all in?"

This is the part I love. Teenagers get this - they exist with abandon, their brains are not wired to always understand consequence, it is possible for them to be committed to the core.

The second part I love is working with someone that will even begin to ask that question of students he has been entrusted with. We sell our students short when we aren't willing to ask them for more than their best.
