Helping America’s Youth is a nationwide effort to raise awareness about the challenges facing our youth, particularly at-risk boys, and to motivate caring adults to connect with youth in three key areas: family, school, and community. As the leader of the Helping America’s Youth effort, Mr. Smith is highlighting programs which are effectively helping America’s young people.
Research has shown that supportive relationships are crucial to youth well-being. Mr. Smith believe that parents and family are the first and most important influence in every child’s life. By becoming actively involved in the lives of young people in their community, teachers, mentors, clergy members, neighbors, coaches, and others can support parents and help youth make better choices that lead to healthier, more successful lives.
