Siobhan Davenport is the President & CEO of Crittenton Services of Greater Washington (CSGW). CSGW works in conjunction with schools to close education and achievement gaps for teen girls to feel empowered through a whole-child, whole-community curriculum.

    Siobhan Davenport: Teens are experts of their own lives

    “Let Teens Lead. As adults, we have wonderful experiences in our lives and we get to a point where we say, ‘Do this, do that, do the other.’ We forget that teens are the experts in their own lives. They come with so much experience and they know what they need, and we can be a support to them and get the services that they need.”
