Just The Facts: Empowering Youth

What is YouthMAX?

YouthMAX is a youth leadership curriculum, designed to give today’s young people practical tools and ideas to help them navigate life in four K.E.Y areas: Stand Up & Be Counted (Stop Bullying), Learning to Fail Forward to Success, Developing a Positive Self-Image and Developing Strong Personal Character.

Stand Up & Be Counted:

  • 1 in 7 students in Grades 0-12 is either a bully or a victim of bullying.
  • 1 out of every 10 students who drops out of school does so because of repeated bullying.
  • YouthMAX will help equip youth to take responsibility, to help others, and be a hero by righting a wrong.
  • YouthMAX will equip youth to stand up, lift up and pick up others.

Learning to Fail Forward to Success:

  • Most teens believe that all failure is bad and should be avoided. In fact, failing is the most important part of success.
  • Those who fear failure will not take the steps to fail forward.
  • YouthMAX will provide youth with facts about failure, how to fail correctly and how to move forward to success after failure.

Developing a Positive Self Image:

  • Positive self-image can be the greatest determining factor in success.
  • Positive self-image does not begin with what we do or what we have, it begins with who we are and who we think we are.
  • Positive self-esteem helps teens cope with emotional stress; this correlates with success in later life.
  • Confidence and the willingness to try new challenges can lead teens to greater academic success, earning scholarships and/or receiving other learning opportunities.
  • YouthMAX will help youth understand the importance of self-image.
  • YouthMAX will offer ways to develop a positive self-image through self-respect.

Developing Strong Personal Character:

A survey released by the Josephson Institute of Ethics on the values and ethical actions of high school students shows:

  • A majority of students admitted cheating on a test, with many doing it more than two times.
