Today's youth face many challenges, both old and new. How can mentoring programs help leverage those challenges into opportunities?
Consider the problems of gambling and substance misuse, which are prevalent among young people. For instance, 17% of youth reported gambling 52 or more times in the past year, and the same percentage of youth drank five or more drinks on 12 or more days in the past year, according to a recent study in the Journal of Studies on Alcohol and Drugs.
The Journal noted that 10% of youth reported having three or more gambling problems in the past year, and 15% of young people reported having three or more alcohol problems.
On Thursday, August 6, I will discuss this topic with my guest Dr. Jim Kooler. Jim’s career has focused on helping youth become active leaders and resources in their communities. He is the administrator of the California Friday Night Live Partnership, the highly successful youth engagement program that is widely regarded as a landmark state-mentoring program. He has also served as deputy director of the California Department of Alcohol and Drug Programs and director of the Governor’s Mentoring Partnership in California. Jim holds a BA in psychology and a Masters and Doctorate in Public Health from UC Berkeley.

in The Bible
I had wanted to do apart 2 to this topic and I am looking forward to speaking with Queen in regards to the things youth face today. She will share her experiences and how the Lord has brought her to where she is now.
My hope is that the youth will gain from this show and be able to see that they are not forgotten not just by God, but by the church. The youth can do so many amazing things for the Lord.
in The Bible
The youth are in a very dangerous place these days. Temptations have increased with technology, media, and many other avenues that the devil has used to divert their minds from the Lord. Even though I am 25 years old, sometimes it can be easy to forget what was going through my mind at 15 or 16. However, I just want to remind that we have younger folks looking at us, not only for an example, but for support in this trying world.
Since I had a very hard childhood, it is easy for me to see how children and teens can go through a lot of pain, stress, and etc. However, some because they have not experienced this on a certain scale, which is good, they do not think young people go through trials, but they do and many times more than we imagine. Some more than others, but they experience battles just as we do and many times they are burdensome because of the stage of life they are in.
Let's talk about the struggles of today and offer some words of encouragement and advice to the young people out there. We will look at the Word of God and the Spirit of Prophecy.
1 Timothy 4:12 "Let no man despise thy youth; but be thou an example of the believers, in word, in conversation, in charity, in spirit, in faith, in purity."
