With youth culture changing at breakneck speed, it’s difficult to stay up-to-date. One way to stay educated, encouraged, and equipped to respond is to track with our daily one-minute Youth Culture Today podcast! It all began as a daily radio spot on hundreds of stations across North America starting back in 2004. You can still listen in on the radio. In recent years, we’ve made it possible for you to access Youth Culture Today online, with episodes archived in a searchable database so that you can find what you’re looking for. You can subscribe wherever you get your podcasts. If you’re a youth worker, we encourage you to be a resource hero to your parents and volunteers by making them aware of Youth Culture Today and encouraging them to subscribe. It only takes a minute to listen to CPYU’s best-kept resource secret. . . and it’s free!
