Imagine Life As A Outcast
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

Men lie, Women lie, but statistics don’t!!! The number of underserved youth becoming homeless or incarcerated is progressively increasing year by year. Out here in San Diego I continually see more and more youth out on the streets instead of in school or doing something successful with their lives (I was one of these youth, and maybe that is why my passion for helping youth succeed in life is so alive). Society now a days is making it “OK” for us as individuals to avoid reaching out those we see as a hooligan or an outcast instead of doing whatever we can to help out that individual because deep down inside all they want is someone to listen & understand them.

Now I would like for you to take a moment and imagine yourself as one of these youth, which one appeals more to you? The role of an outcast who has no friends, no voice, nobody to listen to his/her feelings, desires, ambitions in life or are you more into the role of the hooligan who only has the type of friends the feed off each other’s negativity and act out for attention by committing crimes and living everyday of your life sitting around with your “friends” doing drugs and drinking alcohol; pretty much do anything to fit in and feel cool (also could most likely be a bully or class clown) when in fact these youth just want to be successful themselves and want to stop holding in their true feelings.

Now I want you to imagine a dark room with absolutely no light, no fresh air, nothing but eternal darkness; imagine you are stuck in this room for majority of your life and you are so comatose that the outside world can’t hear your thoughts it is as if your voice doesn’t matter and you are fighting to survive and be heard but nobody can hear you and you are stuck in this darkness with no way out.

Now imagine what our Transitional Age Youth feel like, imagine a life of darkness, being told you were never going to amount to anything and never having anyone truly listen to you with compassion and truly make sure their voice, feelings, and dreams were heard. Now imagine how these frustrations of never having your voice validated can lead to a life of misery (crime, homelessness, etc.). Now ask yourself is this really what we want for our youth? It is time we help our Transitional Age Youth feel like they are more than just a body in a coma, it is time we make sure their voice and dreams are heard, and most importantly it is time we give those who want to spend their lifework as an advocate for change (those who truly believe it is an honor to serve others) are well prepared and qualified to serve the youth who are in desperate need to feel validated.

Now you just felt these feelings of a life with misery and abandonment for about maybe 5 minutes when in fact our youth (ages 12-25) and even some adults are feeling this way every second of the day. How did this exercise make you feel? Would this be the type of life you would want your children to be living? When you imagined yourself inside a world of misery how did it make you feel? Does this make you want to support these youth and those who live their life to serve them?

The FLY Program (Future Leaders, our Youth ) knows exactly what it takes to be a true agent of change and difference maker in our Future Leaders lives. Everyday Youth are faced with the extremely tough challenges of life via the education system, peer pressures, the urge to fit in and be cool. Now implementing a Success Coach the rate of failure to success will increase ten times the normal rate.

There is no question our youth truly need the guidance and support of a mentor now more than ever and with a program like Future Leaders, our Youth which has the mentors (which have been through an extremely very comprehensive coaching certification course designed by Stewart Joseph) is well equipped with the leadership skills needed to take on the tough challenges our youth are going through today.

Now I know you are asking yourself “what makes this coaching program so different than anything else that is out there?” and the answer is that Stewart Joseph is very passionate about the work he does in youth leadership development. As a former at-risk, unruly, foolish youth Stewart Joseph understands what it takes in order to overcome challenges and blunders (which stigmatize youth) as being the establishment of the type of life you are “destined” to live and truly discover you are not an insignificant person, you have a voice, and you do make a difference in this world and now Stewart Joseph has done a honorable thing and put all the knowledge he has gained from his lifelong lessons and self-discoveries and implemented everything into the ideal coaching philosophy program and continues to make it his personal goal (lifework) to honor and truly serve our youth by being a positive influence and mentor in a neglected youths life and validating the youth’s voice helping the youth achieve a life they never thought possible due to the negative nourishment branded into the minds of our underserved youth population.
