As of 2019, the global youth population between the ages of 15 and 24 was 1.2 billion and growing (UNDESA, 2019). A sizable number of youth face discrimination and marginalization daily, often based on their social identities and related interlocking systems of power and oppression (Brewster & Molina, 2021). Minoritized youth, particularly, find themselves trapped in culturally manufactured master narratives that serve to reproduce the very systems of privilege that exist in their country (Liu, 2017). Considering these master narratives can be a significant step in our work with marginalized youth. Building on the contributions of leading scholars in career counselling, as well as other historically influential scholars in fields such as philosophy, education, and literature, we propose using narrative counselling and its related concepts to dismantle master narratives. In doing so, open spaces can emerge for alternative stories for the hopes, dreams, and futures of marginalized youth.
