Dr. Lisa Damour Included in Washington Post Article About the Importance of Summer Jobs for Teens

Dr. Lisa Damour, Executive Director of Laurel's Center for Research on Girls, was included in a Washington Post piece about the importance of jobs for teens this summer, especially following a pandemic. 
Dr. Damour says the pandemic “was basically tailor-made to hamstring the most important parts of adolescent development. Part of what helps young people grow is to be exposed to a wide range of experiences. Going places, interacting with other people, trying things outside their comfort zone — that’s where we see growth.”
