Boys Leadership Program starts up for new year PDF Print E-mail

 The Leadership Program is designed to target risk youth between the ages of 11 and 15 years of age that lack the daily involvement of a male role model in their lives.  The program was developed by the Mobile County Juvenile Court and Team Focus.

The objective of the program is to bring together positive male role models on a weekly basis to provide time and guidance to those youth and match some of the youth with life long Volunteer Mentors through Goodwill Easter Seals, Big Brother Big Sisters and of mentoring Organizations,

How you can help

It's not up to adults and police to do something about youth violence. Adult solutions won't work by themselves. Youth can - and should - do something. If you want to start seeing changes in your school or where you live, here are some things that you should do:

  • be aware there is a problem.
  • recognize that violence affects everyone - anyone can be a victim.
  • talk about violence with your friends and family - take a stand.
  • don' t react to violence with more violence.
  • get together - find ways to help stop violence in your school or where you live before it happens.
  • if there's a youth council, get involved - help promote positive alternatives to youth and gang violence where you live.
  • call or write your local media - let them know the positive alternatives to youth and gang violence where you live.
  • learn the truth about violence in your community - don't let rumors run your life.
  • remember that violent teens are a minority - don't let their actions speak for all youth.
