   The Podcast

The Podcast is a great way for students and adults to listen and have easy access to any of the platforms. This Doesn’t Define Me Podcast is only used for educational purposes to help youth and understand the issues that can affect them in their daily lives. Also, teachers can use this particular platform to educate the students. 

The community resolution is where students choose what social issues to address and find solutions to solve that problem. This podcast will encourage listeners to explore and  topics and consider proposals that might help in the future. The This Doesn’t Define Me Podcast agenda is to bring awareness and hopefully be approved through the educational system curriculum for (9th graders to 12th graders) and college students. It will make a big difference.

The more youth learn about these issues, the more they will be aware and want to make a change in society.
