What an interesting and stretching and challenging time of life! I remember my own teenage years like they were yesterday.. I have worked with young men for almost ten years now and really enjoy the honesty that I encounter. Young men face many issues and challenges in today’s society. A handful of these are:
Identity – What are my values? What do I stand for? How do I express these with my peers/friends?
Changing relationship with parents – The need to define for myself who I am.
School life – Is school working for me? If not, why not? What kind of a career am I aiming for?
Feeling stuck – In between a rock and a hard/dark place. Hard to see a way forward. Wanting to talk it out with someone who won’t judge me..
