Filtering the Noise from Young Hood Boys

About the Course

In the communication process, noise is anything that impedes a message from being heard. Research suggest that positive messages from parents, teachers, and the media may go ignored by youth. Yet these same youth display macho attitudes consistent with those of rap artists. The negative messages are sticking and good messages are not.

Young boys need an adult voice of reason to help them understand the danger of buying into and emulating negative subcultures. This workshop deals with strategies to empower foster parents to empower boys to resist the call of "Thug Life" and become productive citizens.
