A Journey of Choices, Decisions & Consequences
These are the questions Overflowing Hands supporters continually hear from leaders in countries all over the world including Bahamas, Belarus, Nicaragua, as well as the U.S.
The answer: empower youth leaders to create communities where teenagers want to belong and learn to avoid the four epidemics that, according to research, will lead teenagers down destructive paths that threaten their future.
Overflowing Hands has responded by sponsoring Lifeplan leadership training for teenagers. The six month program encourages young people to envision a future by focusing on their God given talents. Research indicates when a teenager can visualize their future and build a plan to make their dreams become a reality, then they are more likely to make positive life choices. They have a plan to AVOID substance abuse, teenage pregnancy, dropping out of school or joining a gang.
In the past three years, Overflowing Hands has supported teenagers in Belarus and Nicaragua with the Lifeplan leadership training. More than 200 young people are developing strategies to take control of their individual decisions and aspiring to be future leaders.
In 2017, our goal is to expand Lifeplan in the U.S. and Bahamas, while continuing to serve teenagers in Belarus and Nicaragua. You can be a part of the movement to help teenagers achieve their highest potential.
Come partner with us to reshape lives of teenagers around the world!!
The Lifeplan Institute, founded in September 2008, was inspired by a commitment to make a positive difference in the lives of millions of young people. The Lifeplan content has been transformed into a bible based program and is now available in English, Spanish and Russian.
