Life Hurts God Heals (LHGH) - is an 8-step student recovery program, designed specifically for Jr. High and High School students who are dealing with unresolved hurts & pain, family dynamics such as divorce, blended family, behavioral issues, addictions, cutting, eating disorder, etc. This program starts in September 2010 at New Beginnings Baptist Church, 600 George Richey Road. For information: http://www.nbbctx.org/supportrecovery or e-mail questions to celebr8recovery@yahoo.com

"12 Things Your Teens Need To Know About Money" - With the success of our student money website www.BrokePiggy.com, we wanted to provide a resource to parents and educators to help teach their teens about personal finance.

Looking for a volunteer opportunity? - The Longview Public Library is always looking for volunteers, age 13-18, to help in the Youth Department. Students may help with shelving materials, tidying the department, or help with programs for younger children. No experience is necessary and we are more than happy to train volunteers. We offer flexible hours and can work with the student’s schedule. Also, we are happy to prepare recommendations for jobs, colleges or scholarships for our volunteers. If you are interested, contact Monica Wood, the Youth Services Supervisor at (903)237-1027.

A really good website to visit is http://www.getalife.tx.gov/ . There is good information on choosing your high school classes, exploring careers, and starting to plan for life after High School.
