A Child Is Missing: "Express Yourself!"-A Course in Effective Communication"

Website

The Idea

:

A Child Is Missing's program (Express Yourself!-A Course in Effective Communication) was created for the high-risk populations (abused, battered and/or exploited youth), who have difficulty in expressing themselves clearly.

The Specifics

This program will be presented by well-trained instructors in ten hour increments three times a year. This course presentation design and strategy includes Lecture, Video Presentation, Interactive Input and Participation by attendees. The Ten-Part series provides an overview of the how and why many marginalized, urban youth are at High Risk. This course will be presented at AMIkids, PACE Center for Girls, Gulfstream Middle School, Walter C. Young Middle School, and Memorial Community Youth Service Program. In addition, it is anticipated that this course will expand to other agencies that work with high risk/need youth. The funding for this program will help us reach the goal of this program which is to help 600 high risk youth.

This has been and will continue to be the most accurate and immediately informative group ever. The communication should alway start with the troubled/at risk children. When they are into adulthood it's difficult to change the feelings of inferiority, hopelessness and anger. I not only believe that the alerts I receive are immediate, but I know this organization/idea could drastically change the youth of our nation. As a survivor myself, I prayed for someone to come along to talk with about what was happening to me and to my six brothers and sisters. Luckily, I had a father who was my rock and my peace, showing unconditional love - then at 17 I had a near death experience that changed my outlook on love and forgiveness, and at 21 married a man who is so very loving and stable. It's now been 41 years and three beautiful children and many grandchildren. Please, please help this cause. It will save lives and hearts. Don't let this slip away...I know personally how it would have helped me in my childhood and early teens.

Effective Communication is such an intregal part of anyone's education and yet it is sorely missed and not taught appropriately to the high risk/need youth. Dr. Alexis Brimberry brings this program to such a deserving population. With all the budget cuts in education and social services this is a program that MUST be presented if we want the high risk/need youth to contribute to society and their community in a productive manner.

"Express Yourself" is the brainchild of our wonderful Dr. Alexis Brimberry.

Her work to prevent bullying and violence and keep youth safe is so critical.
