Education

jerry-howlInspired by the story of the Beat Generation, we encourage young people to identify something that is important to them, and to find a way to do it.

We explain how the Beats were not out to ‘change the world.’ They were simply artistic intellectuals who, in unabashedly pursuing their own passions, and by living authentic lives, did in fact change the world.

The Beats were at the forefront of every major social movement of the 20th Century—from racial equality, gender equality, LGBT liberation, to environmentalism.

Our message to young people is to find a way to do something you love, but also not to be afraid to change that goal when the times comes. Growth demands change, so expect change to occur, and don’t be afraid to embrace it.
