What is an Askable Adult?

Want to connect better with the kids in your life? Presenting “In Our Corner,” our inaugural podcast on this topic, featuring small conversations about big questions, with voices throughout our corner of southern Vermont.

We talk about the relationships youth form with trusted, “askable” adults, what is an askable adult, and could we, in fact, be one? On the surface, these may not seem to be complex questions, but they often have nuanced answers. Speaking with kids in our community, youth-development professionals, and each other, we learn how to become an askable adult — if we are not already. A must-listen, if you want to connect with a kid in your life.
