Archives Available on VoiceAmerica Empowerment Channel
Tools for Teen Transformation is dialogue about relevant everyday issues that concern teenagers and to help parents and other adults to better communicate with teens. The goal of this show is twofold! First, to get the teens to thinking differently so they can begin to behave differently and secondly, to give parents, guardians, pastors and youth leaders, teachers, counselors and other adults some tools to consider when working with teens to develop desired behaviors.
Coach Lily’s vision for this show is to empower teens to develop desired behaviors through conversations with other teens, parents, experts and show participants in the areas we will discuss on the show. This show will cover bullying, teen suicide, academic achievement, self-esteem and pregnancy. Some shows will examine how teens deal with parents, police and other adults and lots of ideas for teen personal, professional and community advancement. Using the tools in this show can literally save teen lives.
