Practical Principle 18: Youth Programs

To encourage youth and support strong families and communities, try incorporating the Guiding Growth tips below into your daily routine

Practical Principle: Youth Programs

Youth spends three or more hours a week in sports, clubs, or organizations at school or in the community.

Guiding Growths

  • Utilize technology and give children, youth, and young adults the opportunity to maintain their involvement in school or community-based clubs. Just because they cannot meet in the library doesn’t mean they cannot meet.
  • Challenge your child(ren) to learn a new athletic skill. Dribbling a basketball, doing a back-flip, or juggling a soccer ball. Treat them to an Olympic-style ceremony once they master it, complete with gold, silver or bronze medals.
