    Hi All,


    I'm sorry that this question is so late, but I am curious about things regardless of age.
    I enjoy learning so bear with me.
    I have seen a lot and it's time for me to stop being idle and enjoy hiding behind my own ignorance and just let things that should be handle slip by with the lamest, self-centered excuses deter me from both seeking truth and speaking truth to the conditions and treatment of my peoples.
    These young people are being let down and misguided by my generation.
    Majority of our youth would not face so much if we was not sold on the lies and continued conditioning to accept all and go along to just get along mentality.

    What they experience is similar to what's been going on for generations, but some where down the line we have to end this or face a very dark and hectic future.
    A future of continued mass slaughtering of our babies and children.
    A continued disenfranchisement of our young warriors and the feeling of hopelessness.
    I know I can't do it all or could save them all, but if I don't try in the end would my life be worth living if I set on the sidelines knowing that I had solutions, but too afraid for my life to prevent a young brother or sister get mishandled or killed by a racist or crooked cop?
    Is there any organization that I can join and get involve to help these kids?

    You can contact schools in your community and ask if they need tutors. Look up organizations within your community. You can contact your local Urban League for this information.

    Just some thoughts.

    Non profit organizations, if you attend college there are clubs for that kind of stuff. You can also post an ad of your own, advertise for yourself. Plenty of parents are looking for independent tutors. You can also volunteer at your local high schools/elementary schools though they may require drug/criminal records screening prior to allowing you around children. You have plenty of options, you can even volunteer at churches and homeless shelters. There are many homeless youth and they're the ones who really need assistance. Good luck to you, just search around in your area, and you'll surely find something
