This week we'll bring you stories of how we grow up, grow wise, and come into our own. We'll meet a young man who spent much of his adolescence locked up in juvenile detention — and is determined to keep history from repeating. We'll find out how teens in Takoma Park are responding to their city's decision to lower the voting age to sixteen. And we'll hear why one religious community integrates frank talk about sex into its Sunday school curriculum.
