The new motto for kids nowadays is “I’m Bored.”
It’s always on Facebook, Myspace, and Twitter.
If you ever start a conversation with a teenager they often say, “Nothing, just being bored.”
I would like to encourage teens to stop being bored and to get involved…You might be surprised.
There are several community organizations working with teens in NECD such as:
Youth Noise Network
Holton Resource Center at DPR
Sato’s Dance Academy
Rights of Passage
Boys and Girls Club
Several Church programs
The quicker students get involved, the quicker we end this boredom epidemic.
