Giving Youth a Voice

With the release of Kenechi's 2.0 website, we advance fulfilling our mission to provide resources for youths, young adults, parents, guardians, and organizations working with youths and young adults to achieve a life fulfilled.

Youths often find that their opinions are not always heard, but rather ignored. Kenechi believes in building the confidence of at-risk youths, so their opinions are just as valued as those of adults. The first goal to strengthen their confidence is by giving them the freedom to have a voice. Additionally, Kenechi offers skill tracks, encouraging youths to self-reflect, identify their passions, and contribute their voice to drive change. 

Kenechi believes that communities thrive when individuals are enabled to accomplish their goals, and that confident, inspired and advocated youths are the foundation.

November is National Runaway Prevention Month

November is National Runaway Prevention Month (NRPM), a public awareness campaign designed to “shine a light” on the experiences of runaway and homeless youth that too often remain invisible. It is also an opportunity to spotlight the resources available to support youth in crisis throughout the nation. As part of the campaign, individuals, organizations and communities across the nation are encouraged to work together to prevent youth homelessness.
 
National Runaway Prevention Month is spearheaded by the National Runaway Safeline (NRS), with the support of the Family and Youth Services Bureau (FYSB).
 
In 2020, NRS and more than 120 partners and ten youth ambassadors from across the country hosted creative events, engaged with followers on social media platforms, arranged for landmarks to be lit up in green (the official color of NRPM), secured proclamations and distributed campaign materials to educate the public about youth homelessness. NRS organized national events, including a Twitter Chat, Lunch and Learn series, roundtable discussion about the importance of prevention programs, Wear Green Day and much more.

Contact Kathryne LeBell, Communications and Digital Media Coordinator with any questions about NRPM and how to get involved with the 2021 campaign.
