Real Talk

Real Talk: Real Talk is a youth-led forum for discussing the issues that are most important to teens. We meet two Mondays a month from 6-8 in the Waltham Public Library Teen Room. Each event is planned, promoted, and executed by teen leaders with help from our Teen Specialist. In exchange for their work, our teen leaders receive training, support, work history, and a stipend. Real Talk is made possible through the generosity of the Library Initiative for Teens and Tweens (LITT), a project of the Rhyme and Reason Fund at the Boston Foundation.
