“We are here really to engage, to partner with the young person.”

“Whatever you prepare, is it in line with what they want?”

“We do recognize that every young person is unique.”

“Be a useful human being to another human being. (…) Just be curious, ask the right questions, and just wait and see.”

Joe Chan
