Bullying and Decision Making: Joining forces with T.E.E.S. to address young people in Houston


In Houston, I recently joined forces with the organization T.E.E.S. (Teens Exercising Extraordinary Success) to kick-off their 3-day summer enrichment workshop for the Harris County Juvenile Probation, on the topic of “Bullying and Decision Making”. On June 20, we spoke to a full classroom of young so-called juveniles. I say "so-called" because that's not who they REALLY are. Our young people just need proper guidance. In this one hour and a half session, we covered bullying, decision making, goal-setting, mediocrity, self-improvement, conflict resolution and more. This was awesome and we're looking forward to doing the other sessions in July!



T.E.E.S. was started to provide youth with a secure, positive family environment where they can earn trust, self-respect and learn skills to lead to a productive lifestyle free of peer pressure, gangs, and /or drugs. They help youth find their dreams through educational enrichment.  Their goal is to empower youth to become self-sufficient shareholders in the economic and social fabric of their communities. T.E.E.S. is committed to the intellectual and economic development of the youth based on respect for self and family, spirituality, justice and integrity. They host weekly Tween/Teen Empowerment sessions every Thursday at Emancipation Park in the 3rd Ward area in Houston. Read more about T.E.E.S. at http://www.teeskaty.com/
