“The lens that I look at this through involves kids, whether it’s in building or cleaning, not to teach them a skill and check it off, which is valuable, but to depend on them for their work is the difference between being wanted, which is great and needed. There’s a lot of neuroscience research that as soon as we perceive we are needed by a community, we are then much more connected to that community. Travis talked about the power of being seen. A great way to help kids feel seen is to say, `we need you.’”
