GripTape is an initiative committed to putting young people in the driver’s seat of their learning. They create opportunities for youth to follow their passions — as inventors, designers, and producers, actively constructing their path for success and supporting other young people to do the same. The GripTape Learning Challenge is a call to action to youth to design, create, and execute their own learning journeys.
What you’ll learn in this podcast:

- The “supports” that adults often put in place in service of helping youth to develop and learn run counter to the development of independence
- The 3 things young people request to better own and drive their own learning
