Many teens and youth today are trapped, becoming enslaved by addictions, pre-marital sex and early pregnancy, and dropping out of school. Youth Alive focuses on nurturing relationships that build resilience against these at-risk behaviours. Youth Alive promotes a healthy, purpose-driven life through an evidence-based, positive, peer prevention programme.
