In episode eight of our In the Pursuit… series, Girls Rock Philly Program Director Samantha Rise and As I Plant This Seed Founder and CEO Ryan Harris get together to explore how we can empower the youth in our communities to lead and take #RevolutionaryActions. They discuss the power of stepping back and letting others take up space, of making mistakes and really listening to the youth in our lives.

America’s 250th anniversary in 2026 is a moment to encourage the next generation to take part in shaping what our city and country should look like for the next 50 years. That means helping our youth to discover their spark, and nurture their passions.

Tune in and challenge yourself to find ways to let the young people in your life lead the way.
