SORT BY Relevancy
Last week we awakened from our 4th of July celebration to a reality of being an undervalued minority in America. Both macro and micro intervention is needed if WE THE PEOPLE are to address that recurrent problem reported to the President of the United States by his My Brother’s Keeper task force. This week we’re exploring causes and effects beyond the letter of law. The year, 1712, the place Virginia’s James River and featured motivationalist, Willie Lynch.
The President's My Brother's Keeper Task Force reports, roughly two-thirds of Black and one-third of Hispanic children live with only one parent. Moreover, research suggests that a father's absence increases the risk of his Black child dropping out of school by 75 percent. And even in the 21st Century information age, too many Americans still live in poverty. If you have read the report to The President of the United States, we’d like to hear your thoughts on My Brother’s Keeper. We're looking at the symbols, practices and promises that strengthen our communities and secure our nation. It's Flag Day 2014 on YouthUSA Radio www.YouthUSA.net.
In this discussion we will look at access to and impact of numerous ICTs on young people. Are these technologies reaching the majority of populations that can benefit from them the most; that need them the most? How have these technologies impacted us negatively, how can we make this impact more positive? How can we continue learning, supporting, and empowering young people to leverage the transformative potential of ICTs, in order to promote and effectively contribute to equitable, and sustainable, socioeconomic development?

YOUTH ACHIEVERS USA INSTITUTE (YouthUSA) promotes asset building through its capacity-building program, THE ANNUAL YOUTH ACHIEVEMENT AWARDS. Since 1996, the program has partnered with families, churches and community groups to qualify youth as “assets” instead of liabilities to their communities. A total of 86 young Americans now qualify as beneficiaries within the YouthUSA Corporate Village. A free online application is available to any American citizen, age 7-24. Each application presents “a vision of the future” through the youth’s goals in seven categories. A “Whole Village” of 20 caring adults each invest $5 to establish a $100 savings asset in a partnering bank. Join us 12 noon eastern, 11 am central, 9 am on the west coast for A WAY OUT on YouthUSA Radio www.YouthUSA.net.

If you’ve been keeping up with the President’s progress on his own My Brother’s Keeper Initiative, you may want to know that My Brother’s Keeper is now focused on six milestones. We found these five:
Getting a Healthy Start and Entering School Ready to Learn
Reading at Grade Level by Third Grade
Graduating from High School Ready for College and Career
Successfully Entering the Workforce
Keeping Kids on Track and Giving Them Second Chances
Now, let's do some aptitude testing. Does the approach fit address the problem? Roughly two-thirds of Black and one-third of Hispanic children live with only one parent. Moreover, research suggests that a father's absence increases the risk of his Black child dropping out of school by 75 percent.

Terryl Ebony, Parent Life Coach and Author is the Founder and Director of Misunderstood Youth Development Center in based in N.Y. She is also the Author of Losing Love, having Faith and Finding Hope. Terryl's life's work centers around trying to ensure that parents and children are on the right track to functionality. She understands that in every family there will issues related to the growth and maturity of our young people but she also understands that those issues don't have to cripple us. They don't have to separate us and they don't have to put us in a position where we lose love, faith and support for one another as far as family goes. She understands that if the parent is educated better in the ways of schooling, positive interaction, values and upward mobility that they will pass that onto their children.
It's hard to dispute that when children display behavioral problems in school as well as in the streets that there are usually some issues going on at home that need to be addressed. Terryl Ebony helps these parents to be able to combat these issues with their children so that family services can be avoided. So that the blame game can be avoided. So that incarceration can be avoided. So that funeral services can be avoided for our youth. She has done this for years and is well respected and revered in the state of New York as well as nationally and she will be coming on the show this Wed. to bless us with some good conversation, some good parenting advice and to kick it with us. She may possibly drop a poem or 2 as well. Who knows?
Remedies and progression first starts with development of Self! This show is dedicated to find real solutions for real people, through first looking internally. For any remedy to effective - Public or Private - we must start with finding remedies between our ears, which means we must adjust how we think. This show will be delivered Raw & Uncut with Your Host Issa EL!
