On any given day in the United States, our youth and young adults are faced with many negative issues that severely affect their lives for generations to come. Some of these events include;
o 6 teens commit suicide.
o 500 adolescents begin using drugs.
o 1,000 unwed teenage girls become mothers.
o 1,000 adolescents begin drinking alcohol.
o 2,200 teens drop out of high school.
o 3610 teens are assaulted.
o 4216 teens contract sexually transmitted diseases.
o 135,000 kids bring guns or other weapons to school.
My heart for the youth of this city has led me to Chair the Greater Erie Youth for Christ Board of Directors.
My passion for these teens has led me to sponsor and host tables at a dinner for you to come and hear how God is using this ministry to halt these negative issues with love and care.
