The Trust Connection begins with Judy, a middle school blogger, presenting a video vignette, shot on the streets of New York City, reflecting on the role of trust in everyday life.

That essay is punctuated by a short dramatic skit about the new kid in school who lied to fit in. This program is designed to trigger lively classroom discussions about honesty and trustworthiness in our everyday lives.
