  • Slide 2: Hook/attention grabber: Stories/facts about the most recent crime rates among youth ages 10-24 (continued). <br />
  • Slide 1: Hook/attention grabber: Stories/facts about the most recent crime rates among youth ages 10-24. <br />
  • Slide 3: The Big Idea (pages 78-79): To have community centers or hang out areas for our youth to keep them off the streets before they get involved with the wrong crowd and they will either be dead or incarcerated. <br />
  • Slide 4: What’s in it for your audience? Explain why your topic is important or worth discussing. More youth are being incarcerated or dying because they are not involved or don’t have interest to do anything except turn to the streets. This is worth discussing because you as a parent need to be attentive to your child and their needs. <br />
  • Slide 5: Why should your audience listen to you? Explain your ethos (personal experience, expertise, and credibility). My audience should listen to me because I have personal experience of losing someone dear to me to the streets by just being an innocent bystander. I am a father of one child and take care of any child that is in my presence. I never allow my child to be outside alone. <br />
  • Slide 6: Call to Adventure (pages 38-39): If we take more action to get involved in our children’s lives as far as getting them involved in things that they passion or take them to community centers, after school programs, or trusted hang out areas, we will be able to save our children of the future. <br />
  • Slide 7: Preview the three main points that will support your big idea: Preview the three main points that will support your big idea: Raising awareness to get our kids off the streets and into community centers, etc. are 1) passing out fliers and going door to door talking with parents about after school programs and community centers; 2) finding mentors that have a passion for kids to help them anyway they can; and 3) talking with kids/teenagers on the streets. <br />
  • Slide 8: Introduce and set up Supporting Point One: Passing out fliers and going door-to-door talking with parents about after school programs and community centers. <br />
  • Slide 9: Factual or emotional evidence: If parents are not informed about after school programs or community centers, their kids are more than likely to skip classes at school, are more than 3 times likely to use marijuana or other drugs, drink alcohol, smoke cigarettes and engage in sexual activity (factual evidence from Afterschoolalliance.org). <br />
  • Slide 10: Factual or emotional evidence: Story about how a community center was closed up the street from where a friend of mine lives. When there was a killing while police where present, parents got on the news saying that community center should be opened back up so children can have a safe place to go (emotional evidence). <br />
  • Slide 11: Introduce and set up Supporting Point Two: Finding mentors that have a passion for kids to help them anyway they can. <br />
  • Slide 12: Factual or emotional evidence: In Tulsa, OK – Mayor calls for more mentors; Bank of America donates $41,000 to afterschool programs to help combat the “growing gang problem” (factual evidence from Afterschoolalliance.org). <br />
  • Slide 13: Factual or emotional evidence: To address the range of youth needs, CCA (Center for Community Alternatives) makes use of diverse funding sources, offers positive opportunities for youths, seeks community support and involvement, and gains adult participation and commitment as mentors, job supervisors and community supervisors (factual evidence from EBSCO host – Earning trust). <br />
  • Slide 14: Introduce and set up Supporting Point Three: Talking with kids/teenagers on the streets. <br />
  • Slide 15: Factual or emotional evidence: Fifty-five percent of Chicago high school students say there are no safe places to go after school; Two out of three young people nationwide with there were more places they could hang out where they could feel safe and have fun (factual evidence from Afterschoolalliance.org). <br />
  • Slide 16: Factual or emotional evidence: Four boys were interviewed by a television news crew about the south side of Flint, MI and the oldest child, 14-year-old Devontea, explained that kids become more violent in middle and high school (factual evidence from AlJazeera America). <br />
  • Slide 17: Call to Action (pages 42-43): Let the audience know to be involved with their children’s lives, motivate them and encourage them to participate in after school activities, go to community centers and hang out in areas that are safe so they won’t get mixed in with the wrong crowd and make bad decisions. <br />
  • Slide 18: Summarize the main points: Raising awareness to get our kids off the streets and into community centers, etc. are 1) passing out fliers and going door to door talking with parents about after school programs and community centers; 2) finding mentors that have a passion for kids to help them anyway they can; and 3) talking with kids/teenagers on the streets. <br />
  • Slide 19: Restate big idea: To have community centers or hang out areas for our youth to keep them off the streets before they get involved with the wrong crowd and they will either be dead or incarcerated. <br />
  • Slide 20: Clincher/new bliss (page 44): Telling/informing parents that have children to be more active in their children’s lives and if they can’t do it, then their children need to be involved in after school programs, community centers or hang out areas that are safe. These are the children of our future to be successful in whatever they want to achieve in life and without us as parents to back them up, they will end up with the wrong crowd either being incarcerated or dead. <br />
