Planting Seeds - Growing Values

Reclaiming Children and Youth: The Journal of Strength-based Interventions, v13 n2 p114 Sum 2004
Nurturing positive values with youth often involves connecting with them during times of internal struggle and relating these struggles to external influences in their lives. Care and support provided by adults is crucial in these times, even when a youth's outward expression of struggles create conflict or concern. In this article, the author features Pastor Greg Van Dunk who began a program at All People's Gathering called Kids Working to Succeed (KWTS). Recognizing there was really no faith-based resource for a community in need, Greg Van Dunk ignited the spark that has fired a church with a neighborhood-focused ministry, where children are the first priority. In examining relevant ways to be a church in Milwaukee's inner-city community, All People's Gathering focused on providing a meaningful place for youth to develop a personal dimension of their own spirituality. The Kids Working to Succeed program is described. (Contains a list of 4 resources.)
