Petition Tag - youth
Youth in our nation need times of prayer and Biblical teaching in order to properly make decisions, and need to be encouraged to follow the LORD JESUS CHRIST who alone should be our law giver, judge and King.
Along with requesting times of prayer and Biblical classes in schools, we the undersigned also demand that all evolution classes and classes teaching non-biblical principals be stopped at once since this is teaching a lie to our youth. As the founders of this nation stated, "We are endowed by our Creator with certain inalienable rights .. . .." The founders of this country proclaimed a Creator, as do we. HIS name is JESUS CHRIST.
The purpose of this petition is to demonstrate the community support for the completion of basketball courts for our youth. Our town has a tremendous history for basketball and previously had 3 basketball courts available.
Currently two are run down and not maintained and a third one has a foundation but no apparatus to play. We need to consider the true benefits of court completion as well as the future of our youth.
Children, teenagers, and young adults alike would all utilize this community facility. It's importance would provide a gathering of friends, an atmosphere of exercise, as well as deferring our youth from hitting the streets and seeking trouble from boredom. Your support is crucial to see to it that the newest court located at the East end of town (13th street) be completed to include cemented backboards/nets, weather proof painted basketball lines, cemented benches, water fountain, as well as appropriate safety fencing.
We are asking that your signature provide Midland Council with the community interest and backing of this project. Thank you for your support.
The age of consent offers an abundance of protection to the world’s youth. However, certain aspects of what society means have been overlooked with this law; that is, individuality.
In order for the age of consent to be plausible in that applies to all persons, every individual would have to be of the same emotional, sexual, and intellectual maturity at the same age. Due to the prevalence of individuality in all of these facets, the age of consent can not be an equation of a certain age simply equalling said categories of maturity.
The remedy for this is to analyze each case regarding a violation of the age of consent and consider the individuals involved on a criterion of more than age. An under-aged person is not necessarily mature enough to consent to sexual activity with an adult, however, by the same token they are not necessary too immature to do so either.
People develop at various rates and it is therefore crucial to stop presumptuously entitling people who engage in sexual relationships with under-aged persons as predators or criminals. That is not to say these people do not exist, but rather to show that they do not exist in all cases.
Simply reaching the age of consent does not mean that a person is mature enough to consent to sexual activity, nor does not being the age of consent mean that one is not mature enough to consent to such activity. The purpose of this petition is not to lower the age of consent or abolish it by any means, but rather to change the law so it can permit the judicial system to look at the individuals in such cases as opposed to categorizing such relations as criminal because they fit one category. This category is age; it is the only factor of the individual being considered when such cases arise. All other facets of an individual are not allowed to be viewed in the law; maturity of the individual (be it sexual, emotional, or intellectual) is not of consideration despite its direct relevance.
It is for this reason that this petition is being proposed.
The law changes as society changes. Today, society is encouraging individuality as long as it does not harm another. Under the constitution, limiting one’s freedoms so they do not harm another is ‘reasonably justifiable’. However, it is not justifiable to simply assume that certain actions harm another based on age and age alone. The age of consent must not be a concrete determination of an individual’s maturity.
Therefore, this petition was created to reform the law into allowing people to analyze the individual and actually determine if such sexual engagements are in fact harmful.
The Don't Cut Campaign is aimed at young people, but open to everyone. We aim to make the world aware that self-harm is a major issue, and should be fought against.
There are other ways of expressing issues that may be causing people trouble, rather than self-harm.

We are two female college undergraduates who are extremely concerned by the growing “overtly-sexualized” imagery presented to young girls, especially as embodied through Bratz dolls.
Bratz dolls embody a hyper-sexualized portrayal of young girls—big eyes, scantily clad, plumped limps, heavy makeup, long flowing hair, eyelash extensions.
The hyper-sexual Bratz dolls are problematic because:
1. Sexualization has been linked with the three most common mental health problems for girls and women: eating disorders, low self-esteem, and depression.
2. With the development new digital platforms, mass mediated images are being distributed on a much wider scale than ever before and the constant exposure to such images negatively affects the way in which young girls view themselves and the role they should occupy in society.
3. Such sexualized portrayals of girls has wider societal effects in the way that others, such as the adult shoppers, view girls –leading to increased sexual harassment and sexual violence as well as demands of child pornography (Report of the APA task force on the sexualization of girls, 2006).
We need strong girls who will grow into strong women – beaming with self-confidence, wit, intelligence, a sense of adventure, but most importantly a sense of self. Therefore, we should be demanding toys that promote such growth.
I want to live in a world where children can go to school without fear of violence.
Where journalists are not threatened for reporting on human rights abuses.
Where people from different backgrounds use dialogue rather than violence.
Where police can be trusted to protect citizens.
Where families are not forced to flee their homes.
500 plus murders in Chicago in 2012 and 30 plus murders in the first month alone in 2013. We need to continue the message that Hadiya herself fought to achieve.
Hadiya and so many others like her demand and messagedeserve to be heard, they silenced her voice but notnot her message.
We are their voice by God's choice. Let their voices be heard.
After several years of decline, smoking imagery in youth rated movies (G, PG, and PG-13) increased 36 percent in 2011.
According to the Surgeon General’s 2012 report Preventing Tobacco Use Among Youth and Young Adults there is a causal relationship between depictions of smoking in the movies and smoking initiation among young people. PG-13 movies are the biggest concern since they account for nearly two-thirds of the smoking scenes adolescents see on the big screen.
Smoking is still a serious threat to our youth. According to the Surgeon General, nearly all adults who smoke started before the age of 18. Smoking during the teen years causes early damage to the lungs which in most cases cannot be reversed completely. It also leads to health problems including heart disease, asthma and numerous cancers as well as breathlessness and the inability to participate in physical activities.
We are trying to create a youth project to consist of a skate/bike park, hand ball court basket ball court and hand ball court.
There will also be an area for the youngsters to relax and socialize it will need to be a covered area and would have a WiFi access point.
Tennessee Governor Bill Haslam is making a decision RIGHT NOW that will mean life or death for thousands of young people like us. This petition asks him to support Medicaid Expansion and Reform.
We are young people in New Transitions, an organization of youth 18 - 25 overcoming adversity and instability.
Where we live, young people don’t have parents with health insurance or bank accounts. Among our friends it often takes three or four years to get an associate’s degree. It’s hard to juggle classes when you work multiple part-time jobs.
None of our jobs come with benefits. Private health insurance rates are crazy. Basically, we don’t go to the doctor unless it’s a full-blown emergency. Sometimes it’s too late.
Governor Bill Haslam has the power to change all of that. Under the Affordable Care Act passed by Congress, Tennessee can adopt Medicaid Expansion and Reform to provide insurance for people like us whose income at or near the poverty line.
Medicaid Expansion and Reform will be controversial, even though the federal government will pay 90% of the cost. We need your support. Please join our petition drive. Help us tell Governor Bill Haslam to do what is right for Tennessee.

Butterfly Giving is a charity dedicated to fighting teenage cancer.
We believe that every teenager should be entitled to education in cancer prevention. Currently, 6 teenagers are diagnosed with cancer each and every day in the UK. This needs to stop.
Statistically, 1 in 3 people will be affected by cancer during their life time. By introducing cancer prevention into schools, we are leaving our young people a life time legacy.
If you believe that our young people deserve this fundamental knowledge; prove it. Please sign Butterfly Giving’s petition to make cancer prevention a compulsory part of the curriculum for UK schools.
Will you join the fight against teenage cancer?
A new era is dawning in Australia with the introduction of the Centrelink Basics Card.
This card will strip people of their basic right of where they will be able to shop and spend their money.
The consequences of school violence that subvert the academic purposes of schooling include school avoidance, diminished ability to focus on academic pursuits, internalizing psychological problems such as depression and social anxiety, fearfulness among teachers and other school personnel, increased aggression and weapon carrying in the guise of self-defense, and the acceptance of violence as a reasonable form of conflict resolution (Elliott, Hamburg, &Williams, 1998; Hawker & Boulton, 2000).
Nevertheless, administrators and teachers devote the bulk of their time overseeing efforts designed to raise test scores, meeting an increasing array of mandates and regulations, and balancing their budgets (Ableser, 2003; G. D. Gottfredson et al., 2000).
Consequently, a vast number of school administrators are adopting inadequate “quick-fix” solutions to stem violence in their schools: suspension or expelling of large numbers of disruptive students, electronic security measures, and/or a single circumscribed psychosocial program (U.S. Department of Education [USDE], 2000).
THE NATURE AND SCOPE OF SCHOOL VIOLENCE
Interpersonal violence or direct violence is defined as “behavior by persons against persons that intentionally threatens, attempts, or actually inflicts physical harm” (Reiss & Roth, 1993, p. 35).
Less serious forms of violence are generally classified as aggressive behavior, which include targeted verbal, physical, or gestural behavior that is intended to cause minor physical harm, psychological distress, intimidation, or to induce fear (Loeber & Stouthamer-Loeber, 1998).
Aggression can also be manifested through indirect forms of hostility such as spreading nasty rumors and social ostracizing (Crick & Bigbee, 1998). Generally, less serious forms of violence invariably precede more serious forms of violence. This dynamic is manifested in event sequences (e.g., inadvertent bumps or verbal slights can escalate into more serious forms of violence) as well as ontogenetically from childhood to adolescence (the pushes and shoves of elementary school children turn into vicious fights during adolescence).
A central goal of U.S. social welfare policy is to ensure that all children have the opportunity to reach their full potential as productive adults. Yet it is increasingly clear that where children live plays a central role in determining their life chances. Children growing up in high-poverty neighborhoods, with extreme levels of racial and economic segregation and inadequate public services—police, schools, sanitation, grocery stores—are at risk for a range of negative outcomes, including poor physical and mental health, cognitive delays, risky sexual behavior, and delinquency (Leventhal and Brooks-Gunn 2000; Leventhal, Dupéré and Brooks-Gunn 2009; Sampson, Morenoff, and Gannon-Rowley 2002; Sampson et al. 2007).
The consequences for these children’s life chances—and for society—are severe: they are more likely than those who grow up in less distressed communities to drop out of high school, get involved in gangs, become teen parents, and less likely to be employed when they reach adulthood (Johnson 2009).
Despite the importance of place, there has been comparatively little research on the ways that the neighborhoods where children live affect their transitions to adulthood or on the characteristics other than poverty that might influence their development. Even fewer programs or policies have tried to address the community mechanisms that might be causing such bad outcomes. Rather, the majority of research and policy attention concentrates on the individual child, the child’s family, and school settings, touching on many points along the path to adulthood, beginning with pregnancy planning, and continuing through pre- and postnatal care, early childhood development, schooling, and the myriad challenges confronting adolescents as they transition into adulthood.
As a result, policies aimed at helping disadvantaged children and youth tend to focus on individual families and children and on school-based reforms. Even the highly regarded Harlem Children’s Zone, which does aim to address multiple dimensions of the broader community, has as its core a state-of-the-art charter school program (Tough 2008). The Urban Institute’s Program on Neighborhoods and Youth Development is dedicated to filling this gap in research and policy knowledge, focusing on understanding the relationships between neighborhood-level factors and the well-being and development of children and youth and identifying and evaluating place-based, community-wide strategies to help children grow up to reach their full potential as adults (Page 2; The Urban Institute’s Program on Neighborhoods and Youth Development: Understanding How Place Matters for Kids; Susan J. Popkin, Director; Gregory Acs; Robin Smith).
What Can Be Done On A Greater Scale:
During the past 10 years, a large and growing body of evaluation research has documented and described a wide range of effective violence and school violence prevention programs, and a growing number of federal agencies, including the Department of Education, have restricted funding to promising or evidence-based programs.
In some elementary/middle schools not many within the NYC Board of Education there are Substance Abuse Prevention Intervention Specialist (SAPIS) and in some Secondary/High Schools there is the SPARK program. Both programs provide age appropriate, services for student and families with prevention and interventsion services to reduce risk factors and increase protective factors. The services are not limited to: Individual, groups, family and crisis counseling; classroom presentation on various topics, social skills groups and/or when necessary, referrals for professional services.
- Will provide a place for the younger generation to spend their time instead of being on the streets.
- Will hopefully reduce the binge drinking and drugs taking.
- The theatre shut down three years ago, it was something people loved to go to then so it would make and impact re-opening it.
This site offers people to watch all kinda of graphic videos of murder, rape, animal attacks and other videos kids, youth or anyone can watch.
It's a site that should not be able to be online and active!
Why is it those who have all the money are allowed to have an airsoft gun? Why do we need a piece of paper to tell us if we're fit to have something or not.
I know why a license is needed for a car, because there's an ACTUAL danger of killing someone with a car, however there's no chance you can kill someone with an airsoft gun, not that I know of, do you?
USA Youth Sports is a recreational sporting league with over 5000 children registered yearly in four seasons.
We would like to form a soccer club called USA FC to represent our area, to provide a direction for recreational players to play competitively and to play in the Pima County Junior Soccer League.
It is our feeling that players and parents should be provided with the option to play competitive "club" soccer and no recreational teams shall be "harmed" while building or maintaining this club...our desire is to provide a method to further develop those players that wish to do so.
We have elected board members (13) and 8-10 teams waiting for AYSA to approve this request. We are NOT properly supported or represented by clubs from and like Randolf, Tucson Soccer Academy or the Fort Lowell SC as we are forty (40) miles South of Tucson and NOT in Tucson. The communities South of Tucson would like to play soccer during the Fall season to also play games SOUTH OF TUCSON as well as be able to call Rancho Sahuarita our “HOME” field for at least SOME of our games.
We have more fields in our area than any one area in Tucson and are currently forced to drive to Tucson for tournaments and league play.
The housing costs are simply ridiculous, and it has become almost impossible to own a home without mounds of debt following.
I myself am a young hard working woman who contributes to society in many different forms and yet I'm not rewarded for my philanthropy, I like many others am struggling day to day to stay afloat.
I'm in the midst of developing a business, something that is my baby and like anyone else starting a business, I want to be successful. But with putting funds into a new project I am only able to scrummage up a few pennies and dimes in hopes of one day coming up with a decent down payment for my first home.
Not only do people in my age group (20's) have issues with finding an affordable home but baby boomers are also stressed, with paying their mortgages or rent, they are forced to downsize or move in with their children due to their CPP being lowered.
Why is it important to sign the Petition?

DTA Chartered Architects have been appointed by East Kilbride Thistle Community Football Club to pursue a planning application which will involve the redevelopment of the Showpark, East Kilbride, to form a new community sports hub for the club including:
- one 3G 11-a-side pitch
- two 3G 7-a-side pitches
- 500-1000 seater stand with associated works including parking, lighting etc
S.F.L. Third Division side Clyde FC are jointly involved with the application and it is their intention to relocate to East Kilbride, establish a permanent home in the town, and jointly share the facilities between the various adult and youth teams which form both clubs.
The addition of new stand and pitches which can be used by both clubs' senior teams as well as the youth teams is a marvellous opportunity for all concerned and we would hope that you would lend your support to this development as it goes through the Planning Consultation Process.
Details of the proposals can be found at http://tiny.cc/3e7n6
Many of the youth of Chandler have expressed desire for an arcade, a public place to meet and play video games, but never publicly. Many of the arcades are not close by, and require making special trips on weekends or holidays.
There is a demand for arcades in Chandler, and teenagers, as well as adults, would be willing to frequent this establishment and spend money there. Chandler City is always expanding, and a well-placed arcade has the good possibility of making a large profit.
Historical Overview to raise funds to re-open the Youth Life Skills Training Centre
A collaborative outreach programme between Magistrate Hennie Strydom of the Germiston Child Court, Social Welfare and the Germiston business district of Gauteng occurred, begun in 1985, with the following aims:
• to remove the underprivileged and / or abused youth from the streets
• orientate such youth to a more normal, home-like environment
• give youth instruction in life-skills and –orientation
• rehabilitate youth, utilising natural elements and extra murals
• give youth practical work skills and training for potential future employment
• instil a sense of self-worth and moral principles in the youth to enable them to become valued and productive members of their communities
Using positive re-enforcement methods, the training centre evolved into a full time commitment and an independent, semi- private institution with experienced staff and care givers to meet the challenges ahead.
Learners benefited from sponsor donations and service agreements. Skilled learners leaving the training centre were in demand by various industries due to their practical experience and training received, whilst still being monitored for an additional year by both business management and the training centre’s social welfare officers.
In 2010, with its associated social ills partly due to the FIFA World Cup event, the industry of crime and drugs became problematic for us. The penetrations of drugs into the training centre lead to some false allegations being made to divert attention from a problem amongst some of our learners. This was brought to the attention of the police and SANCA by ourselves. Their immediate intervention and assistance legally was sought by us.
SANCA (South African National Council for Alcohol & Drug dependence) complied with their legal requirement and in line with our requests.
However things went wrong because of several factors.
Due to the issue being emotive, and minimal to no investigation on the part of the South African Police Services being made, the false allegations of 3 learners, likely based on incitement, self-preservation and misinformation lead to the centre’s demise, with sponsor / donor funding coming to a complete standstill (as did the entire facility and training centre).
Now two years later, an acquittal on all charges has been received judicially.
Wrongs affecting the Centre, then current and prospective future learners, the Centre Principal and staff member/s need to be corrected, restitution sought and the training facility (Youth Life Skills Training Centre) re-opened.

Το ανεξέλεκτο ωράριο λειτουργίας των νυκτερινών κέντρων αναψυχής αναγκάζει την νεολαία της Κύπρου να ξεκινά για έξοδο τα μεσάνυκτα με αποτέλεσμα να τελειώνουν τις πρωινές ώρες.
Σας αποτέλεσμα η νεολαία μας βρίσκεται στους δρόμους στις 4-5 το πρωί να οδηγά εξαντλημένη από το ολονύκτιο ξενύκτι.
Το αποτέλεσμα αυτής την συνήθειας είναι τα εκατοντάδες δυστυχήματα και οι νεκροί.
Θα μπορούσαν πολύ απλά τα κέντρα διασκέδασης να ξεκινούν από τις 22.00 και να κλείνουν στις 3.00 το πρωί.

Our youth are engaging in more and more dangerous behaviors everyday. When school is out, most of our youth do not have anywhere productive to go. This is because most our youth are not involved in outside activities.
Youth Centers can help keep our kids off the streets, out of harms way, educate them, and still provide them with fun and productive activities.
Currently, youth on Extended Care and Maintenance are supported from age 18 – 21, we need to support them to age 25 Most youth are still in postsecondary school until age 25, therefore we need to support them through their education Education is the foundation of success – we want our youth to be successful !
We currently tell youth at age 18 that they must live on their own even when they are not ready , this needs to change When their legal status changes to crown wardship we are their corporate parent. We must do what good parents do!
Do good parents stop supporting their youth financially and emotionally at age 21? Youth tell us “YOU can do better” WE can do better, we have an opportunity to make change NOW Please sign this position to document your support of extending ECM to age 25.
