how it works


Youth​ join the community​ online and reserve their “seat” for upcoming conversations.


Youth with reserved seats join a “table”​ for​ an hour long conversation with up to 5 additional youth from around the world.


Youth​ share feedback​ to further improve the experience! Youth​ can​ sign up to join as many conversations as they like, pending seat availability!



In order for youth to participate in seat at the table, they will need to sign up directly. If you know a young person ages 16-19 and want to tell them about seat at the table, please share our current program flyer (right) and invite them to join the community.
