Editorial

Someone writes: For some reason, the exlusion of older people from the Youth Project meetings makes its members averse to associating with people even three or four years older. It's pretty scary how age-ist our community's youth is.

Another Perspective from a former Youth Project member now all grown up: Some young people may be reluctant to create social networks with older people, for a variety of reasons. One of those reasons might be sweeping generalisations like the one above. Power dynamics exist between age groups that sometimes make connections difficult. Local author AnneBishop has written a great book called Becoming An Ally to address this very issue (among others).

Unless they are into older ,in that case they are already into the bars under age.
