If society and economics are to be revitalized by youth entrepreneurship, we have to start with instilling in youths the right mentality. Youth should never start with money-oriented mindset in endeavoring to be entrepreneurs. It is easy to make money but it is difficult to make money yet make a real social impact at the same time. Youths should never start with the question ‘to make money, what business should I do?’ This will plunge society into a worsen situation. Instead, the right question should be ‘I really hate this aspect of society. How could I get rid of this problem by turning this into a business model that is self-sustaining?’ Our current societal problems lie with our education not preparing youths to look beyond money and to define their meaningful life. How do we all justify our existence? What makes our life meaningful? Our conventional thinking is money is almost everything. Being an entrepreneur is about meeting not just our physical needs but also our soul needs. Look at America, the money-priority business models have plunged America into a divided society leaving the Government with little power to make changes. In its wake of gun ramping fatality, the Government could not revamp the law to prevent its citizens from owning heavy machine and high-tech guns. What hope is in there for America if they cannot even make laws to make people safer against gun industry lobbyists? Looking at successful business corporations, their business visions are more than just money. Google founder and CEO, Larry Page, wants to make world information to be efficiently accessed; the result is a Google search that allows people to access information quickly. Mark Zukerberge wants to make the world more connected and thus results in a multi-billion dollar business of Facebook. This is an exciting journey that makes money a means to an end, not an end in itself.

Youth Gangs

...Describing Gang Membership: An Examination of Youth Gangs Kiara C. Ross Georgia Gwinnett College Introduction Numerous studies have been conducted on the subject of youth in gangs and the many characteristics of a member or a nonmember. In this paper I will discuss what is considered a member of a youth gang, a nonmember and anything else in between. I have read three articles and I will compare and contrast each of their findings in detail. Article 1 The first article that I will be discussing was an in depth study done on youth in Canada. This article focused on “the frequency and stability of gang membership, family characteristics, concurrent behaviors, friendships, and school attitudes of stable and unstable gang members and non-gang members in childhood and early adolescence” (Craig, Vitaro, Gagnon, and Timblay, 2002 pg. 53). It also “examined the stability of belonging to a gang in early adolescence, the behavior profiles, family characteristics, and friendships of non-gang and gang members” (Craig et al. 2002 pg. 53). Craig et al. explained that there were three models that were used to understand the “relationship between gang membership and delinquency” which were the selection model, the social facilitation model, and the enhancement model. According to Craig et al.: A selection model is consistent with social control theory and the propensity theory of crime. According to this model, gangs recruit individuals who are already delinquent or have a......

Enterpreneurship

...government that drives the economy (Igbokwe, 2006:4). This chapter takes due cognizance of this fact and therefore, examines the quality of Nigerian entrepreneurship by focusing on the profiles of the country's major entrepreneurs since the pre-colonial era. Obazu-Ojeagbase (2006:11) reasonably argues that no economic progress would have been made without the efforts of these outstanding entrepreneurs who created wealth for the common good. Thus, -their contributions deserve to be put in proper historical perspectives for posterity. Again, the economic heroes examined in this study are meant to serve as role Models. Their business forays and outstanding accomplishments may help to inspire and re-orientate the present generation of Nigerian youths on the advantages inherent in becoming self-employed and employers of labour rather than seekers of very limited government jobs. Earlier studies on the Nigerian private sector have mainly concentrated their attention on growth, organisation and management of private enterprises in Nigeria. These scholars also tend o give a broad picture of the different sectoral advances in the private sector within the context of changing economic opportunities and challenges as a result of unstable government policies (Forrest, 1994; Olukoshi, 1986; Kilby, 1965 and Akeredolu - Ale, 1975). It would seem that most of these earlier works direct attention away from Nigerian entrepreneurs as if they are mere peripheral agents in the history of......

Youth Rebellion

...My own thoughts on Youth Rebellion Youth rebellion is a vital process of a child's turning into an adult. It can also be seen as teenage rebellion. What is the exact definition of youth rebellion? This is the Wikipedia version: "As part of their development into young adults, humans must develop an identity independent from their parents or family and a capacity for independent decision-making. They may experiment with different roles, behaviours, and ideologies as part of their process of developing an identity. " Youth is one of the most precious periods of a person’s life, and yet one of the most difficult. Teenagers are no longer satisfied with being treated like children, but yet they don't fully understand how the adults' world operates. Not to mention their lack of experience on adult stuff. They try to develope an independent identity and pursue for equal rights as adults. What most teenagers are searching for is just the meaningful cause. Young people are so full of confidence that they are always considering of "I am able to change the whole world" or "The earth will stop rotating without me." Young people are like a mass of flames. They have the will to reform the society. They are also eager to destroy things that constrict and oppress them. Their voice can be a powerful weapon to change the shape of the whole world within proper guidance. Adults, however, believe that the world is just the way it is and never think too much about changing......

Youth

...people live; such as young, old, rich and poor the most important and significant proxy of a society which plays a decisive role is the youth and fresh blood generation of that society. If we analyze the role and duty in a society we can say as; Youth are back bone to the nation. They can change the future of the society with their well being and courageous behavior. They are here to show us that which we have not been willing to look at within ourselves. Unfortunately today we find the youth those who are more interested in other places which are not useful to them as well as nation. They choose to spend their days doing drugs and playing video games. They spend their nights partying and living it up, so to speak. More and more young men of this age group are sitting at home in front of their televisions playing games all day instead of bettering themselves or going to work. They have no vision and if they do have dreams they do not have the drive to make any attempt at achieving them. We must get control of this. We must motivate our youth. We must teach responsibility and goal setting. I fear if we do not we will soon be supporting an entire generation of homeless and needlessly on welfare families. Things have to change, with our schools, with the older generation being good role models, with the older generation being mentors, and with the youth who are right now doing nothing. Those of you are in age of teen, you have a choice. You can allow yourselves to stay your......

Youth

...Social-networking sites have taken the world by a storm leading to nothing less than a revolution. A lot of concerns have been voiced about social networking sites taking over in our lives. However, one major issue that has been overlooked is the changing mind-set of the youth due to the social networking sites. The adolescence years shape our outlook, our personality and mould us into what we are. So when we grow up in a world where our popularity is directly proportional to the number of “likes” and the “haaawt” comments we get on our photoshop-enhanced profile picture and live with people constantly competing for the coveted title of the king/queen of the virtual world, it is bound to have a profound impact of the psyche of an entire generation. The focus and time we spend on creating our brand on these social networking sites is a standing testimony to the awakening of the narcissist in us. At any hangout or get-together more time is spent on clicking snaps and updating the virtual world on what’s going on, rather than enjoying the event. The photos are uploaded within an hour, and then begins the flood of “Likes” and comments. The social networking sites and the culture they have created is thus a breeding ground for a vain, self-obsessed younger generation. We forget that we chose the people we want to interact with on these sites. So the validity of the opinions on these sites need to be reconsidered before we get cozy in a shell of false sense of unwanted......

Youth at Risk

... Youth At-Risk: Preventing Student Dropouts and Facilitating Reintegration A State of Israel Experience Full Paper Melfi M. Caranto. Technological Institute of the Philippines, Manila Overview of Israel’s Educational System The wellbeing of the youth is being taken as a serious national issue in Israel and they have done concrete actions about it. First of all, Israel has a very good educational structure and system. Education is free and compulsory from 1st to 12th grade. There is no private school in Israel because almost all of the school is supported by the state. It is very interesting to note that there is no student who repeats a term because of difficulty coping with lessons. They have a good team who are composed of a school counsellor, a home room teacher and a subject teacher who ensures that a student is getting the attention and the help that he/she needs to finish the term or the school grade where they belong. The Baggrut or the Matriculation examination is a very systematic way of assessing a student’s readiness to land on a decent job or go to college after serving the army. It is a must for all students to enter the Israeli Defense Force (IDF). After finishing the 12th grade (senior high school) boys have to serve in the army for three years while the girls should serve for two years.

Youth Ministry

...Patrick Pastor Shayne Michael Daughenbaugh Introduction to Youth Ministry May 1, 2014 YOUTH MINISTRY FINAL Many might ask, why is youth ministry important in the church? The answer to this question is very easy, and it is because youth are the leaders, makers, and team members of the future. They are energetic, mature and smart enough to help with a lot of things like, setting up for church, spreading the word of God to the community. It is also necessary because it helps to have important relationships between youth and the youth workers; and youth to youth themselves, it makes great friendships. Going back to the given scenario, of just moving to a new church and want get involved in their YM. When I first get there I have to first learn how things work there. Get to know the people that are already working with the youth if there is any and get to know the youth in the church. As I am observing how things work I need to be asking be keeping my self in check by regularly checking my motives and my heart. Making sure that on my side everything is good with my spiritual life and also I am in good terms with my family. After making sure that I am set and God has given me the go ahead sign. Then I will go and suggest some ideas to the youth leaders that are already trying to pursue the job. Now lets say this church is a Tanzanian church. I am more that 90% sure that there is no church out there that is doing youth ministry that has to do with relational ministry. I......

Youth

...Youth workers’ work is very diverse because it depends on the settings, the population and the ages. However, the goals are the same which they are for the benefits of youths. Youth work should have an impact on young people’s lives via processes of developments, enjoyments, taking parts voluntary, with relevant learnings based on young people’s expressed needs and interests. The work with young people is very challenging because they are apprentice adults, on the verge of a new life and the workers are the trainer teaching them the skills needed to become qualified adults or fully functioning. For me, I work with immigrant youth and their families. The major goal is to help them adjust to America’s life. The paths to the goals are so difficult for us and for them because they didn’t come to this country by choice but they were obligated by their families whom are escaping from wars. By transitioning from country to another, this generation has faced many pressures, has experience discomforting confusion, disquieting irritations and perplexities. We find the adjustment to be difficult socially and economically. They have to be engaged into a new world including new friends, new neighbors, new schools, new languages and new environments. They had to flee to another country to refuge while waiting for the welcoming approval by the US. Some families they had waited for years before they came to America. They waited between five and nine. I will describe my work and the......

And Youth

...Age and youth representation in the McDonald’s advert Parallel Lives In the McDonald’s advert parallel lives age and youth are represented in both stereotypical and different ways. The aim of the advert is to show that even though people appear to have completely different lives everyone has something in common E.g. McDonalds. When the audience are first introduced to the “youth”, loud RnB music as diegetic sound and then becomes diegetic sound when close up of the youths shown. The youths are also hanging around with a group of friends, commonly known as a gang. The gang is out on the streets. This is implying that it is common for teenagers to hang around on the streets, playing music and disturbing others. They are wearing dark colours for example black, maroon, dark brown and dark blue while also wearing hoodies. Their trousers are hanging low, resulting in their pants being on display. From using these conventions, McDonalds are giving a stereotypical representation of teenagers-loud, a disturbance and also not being able to dress properly. Whereas the older man is on his own. This is implying that it is common for the older generation to be on their own, perhaps being lonely. He wears neutral colours like creams, beige, and brown, grey and tan. He is wearing his trousers up to his waist and also wearing braces to help keep them up. In addition to this, he is wearing his jacket over his coat. Overall this is suggesting that older people dress completely covered up......

Youth

...Joshua Roberts CM 101: Youth Ministry Philosophy & Leadership 17 May 2015 My Philosophy for Youth Ministry I believe that youth ministry is vital to the growth and effectiveness of the church—local and universal. In order for the church to grow, the adult generations of the church needs to insure the faith by training children and young adults “in the nurture and admonition of the Lord”(Ephesians 6:4). When the youth of the church are not taught the importance of a vibrant and active relationship with God, then the church will see its ranks become thin and aged. With age comes wisdom and experience, but with youth comes energy and determination. In order for the church to be effective it must see youth ministry as a vital part of the body. Since the church needs youth ministry, it is important that the youth ministry itself has a vision and structure to provide organization to reach goals and growth. I believe that youth ministry needs to focus on three key goals or values in order to be effective in the local church. These values are to connect, grow, and serve. These three values will provide structure and vision to ensure a healthy youth ministry. The first area that one should start with when building a youth ministry that will be profitable to the church and its families is connection. We need to make sure that our teens and parents of teens are connecting with God and others. Connecting with God is the base foundation that any believer should be building......

...Hope for Our Youth Jentel Paolino CHS 111.99 March 31, 2013 Early Childhood education (ECE) is a frequently used term when the discussing the welfare of today’s children. From the early age of four children are introduced to an educational environment in hopes of developing the necessary skills to bloom into well rounded individuals. What a child learns in their early years falls heavily on the shoulders of caregivers and teachers because these people play a major role in growing youths lives. However our educators can’t do it alone and with the assistance of federally funded resources such as Head Start, special education, and after school programs children are able receive the necessary help that they need. Head start is a program that provides inclusive early child development services to children and families with low income, these services include free and reduced school breakfast and lunches as well as additional help in reading and math (Morrison, 2012). This program positively impact children in ECE programs because it provides children who are less fortunate or come from disadvantaged backgrounds with a high start and foundation for school success. “Most advocates of public preschool argue that early schooling of low- income children is an investment that pays off in the long term by reducing the number of children who will perform poorly in school, become teenage parents, commit criminal acts, or depend on welfare (Chen, 2008). Parents also benefit from......

Youths

...In words of James” Youth is the joy, the little bird that has broken out of the eggs and is eagerly waiting to spread out its wings in the open sky of freedom and hope.” Power of Youth Youth is the spring of Life. It is the age of discovery and dreams. India is of largest youth population in the world today. The entire world is eyeing India as a source of technical manpower. They are looking at our youth as a source of talents at low costs for their future super profits. If Indian youth make up their mind and work in close unity with working class people, they can hold the political power in their hands. Indian youth has the power to make our country from developing nation to a developed nation. Is it a dream? No, their dreams take them to stars and galaxies to the far corners of the unknown and some of them like our own Kalpana Chawla pursue their dream, till they realize it and die for it in process. hopes of youth The youth hopes for a world free of poverty, unemployment, inequality and exploitation of man by man. A world free of discrimination on the grounds of race, colour, language and gender. A world full of creative challenges and opportunities to conquer them. But let us convert these hopes in reality. Role of Youth: The role of youth is of most importance in today’s time. It has underplayed itself in field of politics. It should become aspiring entrepreneur rather than mere workers. It can play a vital role in elimination of terrorism. Young......

Youth Violence and Youth Deaths by Guns

...Youth Violence and Youth Deaths by Guns Capella University November, 2013 Abstract This project will explore the history, cause, and preventive measures on the subject of problems with our youth. As adults the saying "The Children are our future" is fairly and accurately a true statement. With the changing of times, and economic problems within the urban communities, the children of our future are becoming more of the criminals, and inmates of the future. Violence and deaths among youths has become more of a problem than crimes, and violence among adults. Trying to reach youths that have falling victim to the "street life" seems to virtually impossible because the benefits from being in the streets are more appealing to the youths than getting those same benefits by going about it the right, and legal way. Trying to understand why children kill has come to be a disturbing process. It seems that the youth of today have far more resources, and avenues to obtain a gun than the youth of the past. A study was conducted by Author Richard Tremblay, and some of his findings suggested that “Longitudinal studies of large samples of children from infancy to adulthood indicate that the peak age for physical aggression is between the end of the second and the end of the fourth year after birth. Fortunately, because of their size, physical aggression from two-year-olds does not constitute a major threat to the public in general.” (Richard Tremblay, 2007). Many youths have been......

Youth Violence

...Youth Violence: What is the cause of it, and how can we prevent it? Violence happens everyday, not only in the U.S. but the rest of the world as well. In the 20th century violence was common among adults, but not a real big issue among youths. With violence among youths increasing in the mid to late 1990’s, many people have asked one question “What would cause today’s youth to commit an act of violence against another person?” There are many factors that can cause youths to commit an act of violence. Bullying is the most common factor that usually results in youth violence. Peer to peer bullying seems to be the most effective among youths because the bullies can physically or verbally abuse someone. Studies show that 20% of all children say that they have been bullied while at school. Bullying Statistics. Proactive Behavioral-Management.com. As youths get older they tend to stop the physical and verbal bullying and move to indirect bullying. Indirect bullying is mostly associated with teenagers and it involves gossiping, spreading rumors, excluding someone from social groups. Youths and adolescents that have been bullied directly or indirectly have committed an act of violence against their peers. From 1979 through 2001 youths that were bullied committed acts of violence at schools all across America that resulted in 45 deaths and 90 injuries. “Bonilla, D. M. (2000). School Violence.
