Real Talk Youth Impact Program
REAL TALK GIVES THE YOUTH A CHANCE TO CHANGE The old saying that talk is cheap is only true when it is not followed up with action. Talk is everything when it’s discussion that develops a plan and that’s exactly what Real Talk Youth is giving today’s youth.

Real Talk Youth believes that when teens are presented with real talk, i.e. discussions that allow them to truly understand the direction they are headed, with hard work and a belief in themselves they can change and reach dreams they previously never dreamed of reaching. At Real Talk Youth teens are given the opportunity to hear from people

Goals Of the Program
Our mission is to assist the next generation today, in reaching their hopes, dreams and full potential by building character which will foster responsible citizens and the future leaders of tomorrow.
The real talk members consider all at risk youth as diamonds in the rough. Accordingly, our goal is to refine the participants and give them hope for a positive, limitless future.
The Real Talk members will share their real life experiences with at risk youth during their meetings, in hopes of assisting participants in making better choices.
Our group of present and former federal offenders are dedicated to changing the lives of today’s youth. This is done by meeting with the youth and their parents and guardians and having effective real talk about pertinent topics in the teens lives such as: • Family • Education • Gangs • Crime • Law Enforcement • Judges • Federal System • State System • Supervision • Employment • Society
real talk isn’t just about talking and meeting, we are about real action!

TO BE SUCCESSFUL THE COMMUNITY NEEDS TO CARE
THIS IS A CALL FOR COLLECTIVE ACTION
ANY MEMBER OF REAL TALK will tell you that to actually change lives it’s gotta be about more than just brochures and acronyms, we need collective action as a community! Many kids have heard a lot of talk. No Real Talk Youth member starts with mere talk, but is committed to ensuring that all the wonderful people and businesses within the community are invested in a plan of action for today’s at risk youth. Community involvement is the most crucial part of our program if we want to create a lasting, truly transformational movement.
