Why truTalk?

Because young people can handle the truth

It has never been more difficult to be a young person in the world than it is today. The challenges we now face are much more diverse than those of our parents and grandparents. Ask any honest adult and they’ll admit that life today is just way more complicated than it was “when I was your age.” It shouldn’t come as a surprise, therefore, that so many of us are struggling to make our way in the world.

Yet, we are still, in essence, the same as young people have always been…in search of community, purpose, impact and truth. We want to be valued, we want to be allowed to have and share our opinions, and we want to know the truth…about life, about everything. And while we live in a world that is constantly trying to sell us its version of everything under the sun, we don’t want the fake. We’re tired of it. We don’t want to be lied to. We don’t want some Hollywood version of the truth. We want the real thing.

That’s where trutalk comes in.

Trutalk is a place for young people to have real conversations about the real issues we face. A place where we can not only be free to talk about the things that really matter to us but a place where we can know that we will get the truth even when it’s uncomfortable, even when it’s unpopular, even when it might cause us to change our perspective.

At trutalk, young people are trusted and respected enough to be told the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth. Why? Because we can handle it.
