Do Youth Programs Really Work?

Monday, June 19th, 2017
Youth Programs

Youth programs are an effective means of guiding children into better habits and lifestyle choices.

There is some debate over the effectiveness of youth programs that has led some to wonder whether or not they’re a viable option in curbing poverty and violence in low-income communities. The good news is that most research indicates that young people who are around opportunities for positive encounters engage in far less violence or risky behavior and ultimately have better transitions into adulthood. Youth programs are intended to engage young people in productive and constructive ways that will help better them and their communities, but how well do they really work?

Friday, July 17th, 2015

MBK Youth ProgramsWhen you mention youth programs, many will instantly think that only those involved in the program directly will benefit. The girls and boys who are able to participate in youth programs will benefit from the experience, but many fail to realize that others will benefit from the youth programs as well. Youth programs can also work to help benefit the families of those involved as well as the communities in which the youth programs are provided.

So how do these youth programs benefit children, families, and communities?

MBK Youth Programs

At My Brother’s Keeper, we truly believe our children are the future, especially in the 21229 communities. From time to time we offer specific programs that are directed towards the youth. These programs are designed to target age groups ranging from eleven – nineteen to help the development of the neighborhood youth. Youth programs hold several benefits for the youth of the 21229 communities that are consistent with these goals:

  1. Youths will learn how to better interact with their peers through our youth programs. Youths will be able to learn social skills that will allow them to build relationships as they grow older. This can include family relationships, romantic relationships, and work relationships.
  2. Youths involved in our programs are more likely to perform better within a school setting along with behaving better at home.
  3. Youths will gain a better sense of self along with an improvement in self-esteem and confidence.
  4. Programs will give youths the tools they need to make healthier and more positive decisions in their life.
  5. Youth programs also support an overall healthier, more active lifestyle.

My Brother’s Keeper is as strong as our support. Our youth programs are based on community need as well as the grants available to us at the time. As our staff continues to work towards helping the community, outside help by way of donations and volunteers are always welcome! Become a part of something great and help make MBK where hope finds a home.

To learn more about how to help, or to find out more about our services including youth programs, call MBK today at 410-644-3194.
