Christian Youth Corps for Community Education

According to the statistical data published by the US federal government in 2019, the number of dropouts from schools is increasing among the African Americans, the Hispanic population, and the other minority groups. There are more than 85K elementary schools, 26K secondary schools, and 16K combined schools in the USA. The enrollments are also increasing every year. But if you take a look at the minority groups, the education level seems to be still very low.

Probable Reasons

 The probable reasons could be due to poverty, lack of awareness, the pressure to go for a job rather than school, and many others. According to statistics, 20% African Americans, 16% of Hispanic groups, 22% of American Indians, and 13% of others still remain poor. I have seen the state-wise statistics from Alabama to Washington. Idaho has the largest section with 54% poor among the African Americans.

Possible Solutions

I feel it is very important to create awareness about the importance of primary education among minority groups in the USA. It is a great responsibility we all must take and contribute. Before that, we have to understand the culture, social values, and other parameters related to these groups. Agreed, that most of them are Christians. But we can also find many people from other faiths. So, we have to be inclusive in our approach to growth and prosperity among all the communities…

Christian Youth Corps – What is it

The Christian Youth Corps is a large community of young and dynamic men and women. Since I am also a part of the group, I think I can take the liberty of using “we”. We are committed to spreading awareness among minority groups about the importance of education. When I say education, I mean more than just the academic style. I include vocational training, automation job training, and more.

The Christian Youth Cops has been constantly working towards enabling the minority groups to have a foothold in the Job-market. We may not be necessarily interested in high paying white-collar jobs, but we are certainly interested in providing a decent life.

Christian Youth Corps – How it Works

We have been active in promoting basic education and job-training among the minority groups in the USA. Our team members go to schools, homes, and community centers for meeting those who have dropped out. We have meetings to know about the exact reasons for the dropout. Then we offer support for meeting the challenges.

Once the kids start going to school, we ensure they stay there. It has been a long term effort and we hope to continue with it in future also.

How You Can Contribute

We are a non-profitable group working for community welfare. You can join us a fundraiser, donor, or volunteer to strengthen our group. We are active throughout the USA and you can reach us on our website from anywhere.

Conclusion

Christian Youth Corps will always be there whenever there is a need for helping hand for the kids and youth who want education, seriously.

Charitable Works of the Christian Youth Corps

Charitable Works of the Christian Youth Corps

Charity is a word that is largely misinterpreted in the present society. It is often associated with the alms you give out to the poor near the churches and on the streets. I have seen many of the rich showing little or no empathy with the poor and the underprivileged. Many of them feel they are doing a great favor by doing charity. Here is where the Christian Youth Corps play an important role in changing the definition of charity. It is now a social responsibility of every right-thinking citizen of our great nation.

Community Services

Community programs include education, training, de-addiction, and rehabilitation. The Christian Youth Corps cover male and female of all age groups from the newborn to the 90+. The programs start from feeding the malnutrition affected babies and children.  You can find them in all the church and government-sponsored hospitals and maternity centers. You can also come across many orphanages which care for the abandoned and orphan children.

Child Education

Child education is often an expensive task for parents in Asian and African countries. Thousands of children drop out before they reach high school. The Christian Youth Corps have taken up the teak of bringing such children back to school. The programs are also working efficiently in developed countries like the USA, Canada, and Europe.

Child Nutrition

More children die due to malnutrition than war and terrorism all over the world. The year 2016 saw over 5 billion deaths in 2016. One of the reasons has been the poor distribution of food to the needy and starving communities.

According to independent analysis, the USA wastes 40% of its food from total supplies. If the same foods were to be provided to the needy, the world food problems can be solved significantly. The average volume is stated to be 150K tons.  If you consider global statistics, it could be shocking.

Christian Youth Corps has been playing a highly responsible role in channeling the good quality and nutritious food from these sources to feed billions of children all over the world. 

Care for Women

Women are the sustainers and protectors of families. Yet, they haven’t got the due protection and nutrition all over the world. The Christian Youth Corps has been playing an important role in rehabilitating and restoring their health conditions. They take care of timely mediations, vaccinations, and other protective measures regularly. 

Education for women has been a limiting factor among the African and Asian counties. The villages and semi-urban population have seen very little or no growth at all. Here also, the Christian Youth Corps has been playing a critical role. You can see hundreds of primary and practical education and training for women. 

Practical training can help women in earning a livelihood through small businesses, handloom industries, teaching, and many other small professions. The programs have also helped thousands of African Americans who have remained uneducated and jobless.

Conclusion

You may also join the Christian Youth Corps as a volunteer and work for the betterment of the underprivileged communities. 

Christian youth groups Pop Concerts

I have been listening to contemporary popular music concerts from the Christian youth groups for years now. One of them has been Avalon. The Creed is one of the greatest songs I have ever header from the group so far. They released this song in 2004, the year in which I graduated. I can also recall the other group and artists like Zach Williams, Cory Asbury, and Mercy-Me. All of them have devoted their time and life for the community welfare and awareness programs.

Music for Life

Music is an eternal form of energizing your life. It can motivate you, relax your mind, remove the stress from your body, and take you the fourth dimension of life. I started experiencing these feelings early in my life when was 14. I heard Beethoven for the first time then. It was symphony number 9. My inspiration became so high that I bought a violin and started practicing.

In the beginning, my focus was on the classical compositions from Mozart, Paganini, Bach, and others. The music was great but I felt it could have more life it’s rendering. At the age of 26 I started listening to Zach Williams. The music was very simple, yet it had a profound impact on my thinking. So, I started following him. I have also been an avid follower of Amy Grant, Casting Crowns, and Carman.

Today, I have chosen writing as the main career of my life. I travel places in Asia and Latin America to write about tourism, culture, religion, and traditions. I play instruments like violin and Spanish Guitar. I also sing the Christian songs in my concerts all over Asia and Latin America. Most of my programs are for the charitable communities.

Essence of Music

For me, the essence of music is in my central nervous system. Music in any form creates a feeling of mild vibrations in my body. They start from left ear, travel through the neck and spread to the brain and the spine. In the beginning, the feelings used to scare me. I thought there was something wrong in my physiology.

One fine day I contacted a psychologist in my city and explained the problem to him. He simply laughed and told me there is nothing wrong with me. He said my body and brain are too sensitive to sound. That was the day when I discovered the true essence of music in my existence and life.

Purpose of Music

Even after discovering the essence of music, I was still left with a void in my heart. The Christian youth group songs instilled a purpose in my life. I started experiencing the spirituality and the divinity of the music from then.

Today, I live a life of spirituality, sanity, and serenity with my family. I have been working with many enthusiastic men and women who have received the blessings of purposeful living through music. I invite you to read my future articles and get inspired by the divinity of the higher power.
