Kids Require Hope to Thrive

"Young People Require Hope to Thrive" was the title of a recent article in the San Francisco Chronicle newspaper.

The article sounded a siren with the statement that, "Three out of five young people ages 16 to 22 now express sharp worries about finding a job. … "

So it is with a nation and world navigating very challenging times, that young people's dreams and aspirations also become challenged. The hope that kids need to thrive has been replaced by concerns that stifle their imaginations. Instead of thinking about ways to move forward and make the most of life's opportunities, many kids are stuck in a worrisome present.

The Lifeplan program is not a panacea, but it is a remarkable tool that can significantly enhance a young person's sense of direction -- where they want to go and how to get there. Lifeplan opens the way for kids to THRIVE, not merely survive. And no young person needs to "go it alone." With Lifeplan, they'll have a personal Board of Directors made up of mentors who care. Those people will serve as a living portfolio and asset to each young person now and long into the future.

We are currently scheduling Lifeplan training events for schools, sports groups, and afterschool youth programs for summer and fall. If you would like to have a Lifeplan training session in your area, please let us know. Once you have Lifeplan, you have it forever and the young people you work with will have an extraordinary asset to support them in fulfilling their dreams.

Happy Spring!
