Here is what the one side has to say about youth sports. If young children and teens only does one yearly rounded sport, that does not lead to good health for the kid or teen. There is some research to help back this up. Studies show that if a kid plays one sport yearly rounded, they would have more injuries, anxiety, and depression from that one sport and intensely training for that sport. There are also other symptoms for this.
Children are not permitted the same rights and responsibilities an adult has. A child doesn’t have the same standards as an adult has. A good example is children don’t get to join the military as an adult could they must be 18 years and older to join the military. Teenagers don’t make the same decisions as an adult would. “With appropriate treatment most children who commit crimes, even the most violent crimes, can be rehabilitated and become responsible adults.”(Berger) The reason why is because their brains are still changing they are still going throw a change they are still growing.
These children go through very different experiences than their peers outside jail walls, face many challenges during their time in jail, and have difficulty adapting upon release. Placing children and teenagers in jail results in negative effects rather than rehabilitation. The juvenile justice system in America is complex and varies from state to state, but the overarching purpose is to rehabilitate youth offenders. It processes nearly 1.7 million cases a year and overall handles most of them the same way (“Youth Involved in the Juvenile Justice System”). When those under age go to trial, their sentence often is decided by how likely they are to be rehabilitated and learn from their mistakes (“Juvenile justice”).
The five of us met weekly and collaborated with the professor on lesson plans while answering students’ questions during lecture. Furthermore, my peers and I created a model or an activity, related to the week’s lesson, to illustrate a concept in chemistry.
Once a child is tried as an adult they are isolated and do not receive the attention they need. Trying them as adults will only make matters worse due to their inability to interact with society once set free. The opposing side displayed that research suggested adolescents squeezed through the adult system are more likely to come out as violent career criminals than similar kids handled on the juvenile side (Lundstrom 88). This is false, due to researching more about each child it has came to my knowledge that a majority of kids released had a tendency to go back in to jail for committing other crimes such as theft or assault. Speak of Alex King, whose’ story of “Angels of Death”,
Some recruits may have to shed blood to gain entry into the gang. (Info.publicintelligence.net) The majority of gang members are approximately between the ages of 12-24. The reasons for young people joining gangs, which were stated above, tend to be due to lacking something within their life. They seek protection, possibly because they do not feel safe in their home environment or in their neighborhood. Regardless of their reasoning, determining ways to discourage youth from joining gangs is important not only for the safety of the youth but for the success and safety of the
Kids that believe the drinking age should be lowered are wrong because it just makes school harder for them to achieve at. Also if seniors in high school are allowed to have alcohol that just means underclassmen will also. Accidents using alcohol end in many fatalities. Fewer motor vehicle accidents have happened since the legal drinking age has been moved to 21 years old
You need to be in class by seven thirty or risk getting detention. Even though this panic feeling of being late and tired is all too familiar to most teenagers if not all, many schools still have starting times before seven thirty and don’t realize that it greatly affects the amount of sleep a teenager gets resulting in lower test scores. Although getting enough sleep may not seem like that hard of a task, medical research shows that teens who regularly get too little sleep are
In the mentor program you meet with a freshmen every week and discuss some of the challenges they are facing while adjusting to high school. You are also able to discuss personal problems during your session as well, like home life or self confidence struggles. When you first enter the program, you go through an eight week training period. The training includes confidentiality, building rapport, how to get a connection, and digging deeper into questions to get to know your freshmen. Throughout the year, your freshmen, or mentee, becomes a lot closer to you, and you build such
Every teen, at some point in their high school career crave money thus leading to the option of possibly working towards getting a job. There are some fair shares of some positives and negatives when it comes to teens working during high school. A teens performance during school might falter or they can be led down the wrong pathway. Teens shouldn’t be working during high school because it can only lead to them facing a situation where they might pick the wrong option and face consequences for it throughout their lifetime. The main problem I believe all working teens face is the effects it has on their academic performance.
Since 1902, parents and volunteers have helped the 4-H program develop successful leaders, build young minds, and set the path for 4-Hers to take on the world. Volunteers and parents are a major reason for 4-H’s success in youth development. Volunteers and parents help make 4-H possible. Without 4-H volunteers and parents the program would not have the mentors, leaders, and guidance that the 4-H members need in order to learn the new skills that 4-H has to offer (“Positive Youth”). The 4-H Youth Development Program (YDP) strives to provide quality leadership for youth participating in 4-H Youth Development Programs, events, and activities.
Through my participation in numerous events I have been able to show my concern for my community members, and community. After high school I volunteered as a researcher at the DuPage County Historical Society during the summer of 2014. For my community I dedicated my free time looking up questions and interests of the citizens. After countless hours of research, I wrote up thorough answers to the citizen’s questions. Also, along with the DuPage County Historical Society I participated in many volunteer events such as walking tours, and fairs.
According to Meagan Cahill, most youth who join do not make it very long since they are young and have to do the dirty work (Community collaboratives addressing youth gangs: Interim findings from the Gang Reduction Program). These types of programs would go into schools and create presentations and do workshops with the students about gang life. They would also reach out directly to students who are supposedly in a gang. The program would also hold workshops for parents who feel that their child is in a gang. This would inform parents on how they can help their child who has been roped into the dangerous life in a gang.
In my sophomore year I was involved in two great programs. The first is “Newcomers Hope Club”, where we help provide new students with the tools they need to brighten their future, not only in school, but in life as well. In summary, we provide answers to all of their questions and concerns, and if we ever do not have a sure answer, we take the time to find it for them. We also provide them with outings where they can meet new people and connect with their peers, for example, we organized an outing to the movies to see The Fifth Wave. The second program is “Leadership Symposium” where we strive to inspire and motivate students with positive attitudes and good messages.
As part of ASB, I will be able to work with other students who have similar interests and want to be fellow leaders at Medea. I have been in student council at Oak Hills and have been class rep multiple times. This demonstrates that I attended and participated in meetings twice a month. I also helped plan and run activities and events for the students at school. For
