Parent Support Group
mission & vision
Assist today's at-risk youth in achieving their highest potential as responsible citizens and future leaders.
The Real Talk Youth Impact Program members are made up of former and present federal/state offenders who are dedicated to changing the lives of at-risk youth. They share their experiences in and out of the penal justice system in hopes of changing lives. Some of the topics covered during our monthly "Chang One" meeting include:
Each month Real Talk provides a variety of other community resources for the parents/guardians and the youth. We believe it is imperative for other agencies to assist with saving families and the youth in our community. We encourage our participants to sign up for extra-curricular activities at the end of every meeting and Real Talk will provide limited funding for their selected activity.We welcome any organization that wishes to be a part of making a change in the lives of youth and families in the community.
Real Talk provides a free parent support group during our "Change One" meetings. Parents who have youth enrolled in Real Talk are required to attend the first and third support group. Real Talk believes it is extremely important for parents/guardians to show support to their children as their lack of support reflects our overwhelming concerns regarding the potential of the family unit being severed.
