10 Things Churches Need to Understand about Reaching and Engaging At-Risk Youth

November 6, 2014, at 2:00 pm CST

With Scott Larson, Straight Ahead Ministries

The U.S. government estimates that 1 in 4 young people are “at risk” of not entering healthy adulthood without significant adult intervention. We know that it is not one or two primary fators, but the accumulation of four or more that puts a young person at great risk. Researcher James Garbarino noted 10 major risk factors that contribute to delinquency. This webinar examines each of them and gives churches practical strategies for engaging each in ways that move young people toward character transformation rather than dysfunction and delinquency.
