WORTH IT


Because Who You Believe You Are Determines Everything

“A man is but the product of his thoughts. What he thinks, he becomes”. – Mahatma Gandhi 

 

Who am I?

...is the one question that every young person asks. The youth in this generation turns to group or online identity, academics, appearance, or relationships to find thier worth. This process is laden with instability, vulnerability, and insecurity. In this digital world children are groomed to place their identity in that which is constantly changing. This leaves students vulnerable in who they are and thus vulnerable to abuse, manipulation, peer pressure, anxiety, and risky behavior such as drugs, substance addiction, and promiscuity among other issues. 

 

Multiple sub-issues plague our youth and their ability to establish a firm identity. Worth It Network targets these 4 specific issues:
