Programs That Work...
On Sunday, May 21, 2017- RCR! Presents Real Discussions ~ Topic: Kids Are People Too. The focus was on Programs Designed To Stimulate Their Minds. Our guests were very insightful regarding our kids today, their patterns, theirs habits and the peer pressure they face on a regular basis.
Our guest Christen Munroe is the founder of VS Alternative which offers kids (boys from ages 12 - 18) a safe space to perform gaming activities. Remembering what he was like as a kid and the love that he has for his younger brother, helped to birth the concept. Christen is currently in law enforcement and has decided to give back to the community and help young teens stay off the streets.
Our other guest, Valeria Vincent comes with years of experience in teaching and works along side Christen in the program. She shared with us how teaching has changed from traditional classroom settings to homeshcool to even virtual. Despite the freedom of not having to physically sit in a classroom, the student and parent still have a huge responsibility in getting the work done.
Gaming is designed to use the old and new concepts to work together. It's teaching young men how to think outside of the box, leadership, team building and a sense of belonging. Social media will be used to help create positive competition between the players/teams. This program is designed to have teen boys be present with gaming and take their minds off other distractions that could lead them into trouble.

We wish VS Alternative all the best, as this program will be embraced by schools, after school programs and organizations, one community at a time.
Until next time, be humble and continue to...#ROCKon
