This is what success looks like - our youth recognized for their academic achievement. We want many more children to aim high and succeed in school. Doing well in school, though, requires reading well. And, right now, too many of our kids are suffering from the "summer slide" which is what happens when they don't read during the summer months and fall behind in academics when school resumes. Parents and caregivers -- please encourage your children to read this summer. Here's strategies to keep them reading: bit.ly/2JvcqdS Let's make sure all of our children succeed in school!

Many of our families need wage increases - immediately. So what would happen if the federal government imposed a $15 minimum wage? Now we know. Is it worth it?

One of our parents recently told us...."I am so appreciative of the Urban League’s commitment to my child’s education and future. They work with not only the students but the parents and show us how we can continue to motivate our child’s achievement, both in and out of school.” Get your child involved: ulpbc.org/youth-education

Another terrible example of our young people killing each other, this time in Boynton Beach. We are addressing youth-on-youth violence with our crime prevention program. We're providing youth who have had challenges in their lives with vital services - job training, school tutoring, and parental education. Our goal is simple: we want to keep them off the streets and away from further trouble. We want to end the kind of senseless tragedies that took the life of this young man.

Morial. Read more: bit.ly/2Js0E7k

Today, we're bringing attention to the kinds of changes our young people can make when given the opportunity to lead and shine. At this school, black students led an effort to make big changes after an ugly slur was used on social media and fights broke out. We applaud these students for being able to forgive and engage in meaningful dialogue -- it's something our nation needs a lot more of. "Like" if you agree...

What happens when black youth are allowed to help lead their communities? A lot. Great read: bit.ly/2xO1W6h Locally, our NULITES and National Achiever's Society programs are helping our young people learn the skills and find their voices to lead. Support our youth by listening to them and giving them opportunities to take charge.
