Those who wish to change the behavior of wayward youth only have to START, says the founder of The START Program, Babatunde Beeks. Using the basic formula of talking to teens, creating positive activities for them and addressing their concerns, his organization has had a tremendous impact in the lives of many youth considered "at risk."  He discusses how adults can change their environment instantly, and how The START Program, which stands for Speaking Truth And Reality Today touches the hearts of youth by honestly addressing their real life situations and helping them find solutions that make sense.  He offers a model of success that can be duplicated across the country.
