Louise Langheier on Teaching Teens Confidence and Self-Worth

In Chapter 15 of 21 in her 2014 Capture Your Flag interview, social entrepreneur Louise Langheier answers "What Role Does Confidence Play in the Work That You Do?" Langheier notes why teaching high school students to be confident is fundamental to her mission to empower young adults to make healthier decisions. Teaching teens about confidence and self-worth gives them valuable awareness skills to understand what matters to them and then make decisions aligned to those priorities.
