Writer, Youth Advocate, Mentor, and Life Coach, Joshua Stern is dedicated and committed to improving the lives of as many At-Risk & Homeless Youth as possible. The Josh Project is an organization that has been setup to help enable these goals and to help bring Marion’s Place (See Heading on Website) to fruition. At The Josh Project we hope to create more awareness, assist with prevention, and finally, initiate change for current and potential At-Risk Youth.
The main focus of The Josh Project is to combat the many hurdles today’s youth inevitably encounter. As well as shed some light on societies immediate willingness to accept that these kids are suffering from a mental disorder and in turn instantly put them on prescription drugs, or toss them to the side and label them as outcasts or “bad seeds”. Without the proper medical evidence to back up such claims, nobody should be diagnosed or dismissed so simply. We believe it’s this attitude that creates a world where teen suicide is continuing to grow at alarming rates. Nobody should be too afraid to admit that we all struggle with life sometimes, and nobody should be made to feel that his or her emotions are insignificant or unimportant, no matter the age or situation.
It's good to talk.
