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.

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.
