Good Morning people. This is another day to do something for our youth. Get yourself together this morning and go out and help some body especially some one young. We can do this!

Today people I went out and performed a service at one of our homeless shelters here in Atlanta. I simply gave free hair cuts to those men who wanted one. This simple task not only allowed me to make them feel better about their appearance but it allowed me to hear some of the things that they are going through. And speak positive words back into their lives. So many men are hurting. I believe I will continue this service. Funny something as simple as a hair cut can help change a man's self esteem. This year whatever it takes to help my fellow brothers and sister's I am going to do cause I remember when I was there.

Well Ms Hunter you have a very strong point. But their are some things we can do such as try and place the young men around positive roles models. Get then involved in sports or other activities where there are men coaches who are not just focused on teaching them the games but teaching them life. The only small obstacle then is having the parents who are young sometimes to know to even do that. Here is where the spill over affect comes into place. Sometimes when you educate one on the process it then spilld over to what they themselves must do to better themselves as well as their child. I am finding that people do want to know and learn just so many times the kicks of life have discouraged them. Maintaining a positive attitude is very difficult for many when life has treated then so badly. I find the best way to keep your head up is to focus on the little blessings in life. The simple fact that you were able to wake up in your right mind. Youn can walk and talk and do things for yourself. Instill in a young person the value of life itself and the seed for other things will grow

Good morning. This is so great to start the year off with the youth. I have been doing this for years. I am willing to roll up my sleeves, and support the mentoring programs. I raised my children. Took much being a single parent. I am thankful this made me aware that all children are our responsibility. I have found out when children are loved they change direction. Many think It is all about material blessings for our children. Love last when everything else runs out. Lets love on our children.... God has a way of bringing things In order. I met a young lady I roomed with In Miami and she has a home where she takes In children. I am thinking about refocusing my life and go where I am led to be a help to our children

i am a single mom of 2 teens, a fulltime student and employee. I have pretty much been there and done that in the few yrs I have been on this earth. I have a big heart and small pockets but know that our youth needs to know there are options and that someone is there for them. They need direction and trust

Hi. I am executive director of an organization called The Joseph Foundnation (www.josephfoundnation.net). We are a management consulting company, but we also teach Youth Leadership to at-risk teens. The premise of our Youth Leadership curriculum is that if you teach a leader's mindset, you give the ability to think outside of circumstances. I am glad to be a part of this group, and I pray to be part of the solutions you come up with. Peace

It has been said it takes a whole village to raise one child. I oversee a mentoring program called AFC(Anointed for Christ). Which is dedicated to mentoring young males. Young males need guidance and support. I have found out that many men are out there doing what needs to be done but the way the media has it set up is you are only going to see the failure. Still I don't allow this to dicourage me in what has been place on me to do. If I can reach one child and direct them on the right path then soon the domino affect will take place. We are out there. We coach little league and cousel at the boy's club. And we talk to them on the streets. It just that it seems that it is not working. Don't get discouraged. Lead by example! One child at a time. It is happenning just keep the faith
