We believe that young people and the entire communities have the inherent capacity to change attitudes and behavior. The power to fulfill this capacity is often denied or is not exercised. This power must now be recognized, called forth and supported from within and without. This will enable young people to initiate change and sustain behavior that promotes a healthy state of mind, body, spirit and environment. A critical component in this process is a supportive response to the most vulnerable young people.
