Yes, it is important that our teens get a break, but we don’t want them bored! Here are 9 different activities that will keep them busy this summer.

Picks of the Week:

“The Adopt-A-Block Guidebook” for individuals and groups.  Reach out to neighbors to create a safe neighborhood for youth! For example: In Oakland, there are 463 churches and 100 civic groups.  Imagine the impact on youth if each group adopted just one block?

I think this is a critical time!  Many cities are facing budget cuts and the reduction of community programs.  We need more citizens involved to keep kids and neighborhoods safe.  Check out the Safe Kids Now website at:www.safekidsnow.com and for more information about her book, go to www.safekidsnow.com/adoptablock.html.
