Hot Topic: Issues Impacting Youth Success

  • Friday, February 04, 2011
  • Girl Scouts of San Diego-Imperial Council


Presented by LEAD San Diego Alumni Council

A discussion for members of LEAD's Alumni Association

Anyone who has worked with youth will tell you that teenagers can be subject to a host of psychological and emotional stressors that can dramatically affect their behavior. The combination of hormones, physical changes and social forces created from school and social pressures can often cause adolescents to act out in ways that often can be harmful towards others, or towards themselves.

This roundtable discussion will cover a range of topics, including some of the hard hitting issues associated with youth culture today, as well as the ways to equip adults to better understand and respond to the complex and rapidly changing world of our youth.

  • Cyber-bullying & the inherent risks technology poses to youth
  • Sexual orientation and gender identity
  • Dangers, lure, and effects of substance abuse
  • Underlying issues leading to sexual promiscuity

A roundtable discussion exclusively for LEAD Alumni Association members to better understand and respond to the complex world of our youth.

Friday, February 4 from 7:15 to 9:30 a.m.
