"There are so many young people struggling with the pressures that come with being a teenager in today’s world and the stresses of dealing with all the changes and choices they have to make at this time of their life. It is so easy to forget how hard it is to be young and in today’s culture, it’s harder than ever. We need to do more as a community to empower our young people so that they can journey into adulthood with a deeper self-confidence, purpose and hope."
