Youth in WV
Youth today seem to face many challenges ranging from health to the need to perform above expectations. This pressure is often too much for them to handle and the popular recourse is usually substance abuse or alcohol abuse. This phenomenon poses quite a problem for the West Virginia government, as a high number of criminal activities reported have some level of youth involvement. Being a very impressionable and sometimes overactive lot, these youth can be easily used as pawns in various illegal activities. The West Virginia Education Board tries to work closely with the Criminal Justice Department to create distractions and other forms of entertainment that would keep these youth out of trouble and thus away from possible substance and alcohol abuse. Through education, the various governing bodies hope to enlighten youth to the dangers of such indulgences. Several youth groups, actively organize various different events that are aimed at getting these youth into programs that are engaging and exciting. Providing counseling and drug intervention programs that are anonymous, also seems to encourage these youth to seek treatments.
