This is a biggie. Maybe a couple people can work on this one. We are doing a lot of work in this area and have a new pilot program started.

Who wants it?

Hey Shun Shifu! As the name suggests "At-Risk youth" I somewhat do get the concept but not so sure. Is this to help spread awareness for Shou shu training to at risk youths? Probably thats a weird question but its good to ask!

I read about other tasks and now I think that question was foolish. So we create a Section and write about "at risk youth and how Shou Shu helps" < Thats my question now!

Hi Likey,

At-risk youth is a very general term. A kid can be at-risk for a lot of reasons.

So we are doing a number of things. One thing we are doing is getting our classes into schools. We have a few pilot programs going in continuation schools. The teachers just pull up our classes and do them with the kids.

So we are looking to expand on that.

We also want to put together a lot of content around the subject. So yes research and writing. Management of a facebook page, any content we can generate is good. If the group works together on this I think we can do some interesting things.

I can give you a section of the site to start building if you are interested.

Sure Shun Shifu I would like to start on a section.

A facebook page is a great idea but we'd need at least 3 - 4 people maybe. (When one is away the rest may work)
I've seen the page for Shou shu ; The one with the display picture of you and Shifu Liz and Da' Shifu! Its a great page and I may make an effort to get more likes and that way I can spread its awareness! Good idea?

Sounds great. I look forward to seeing what you come up with.

I just upgraded your account to author. You should now see a menu at the top of the screen. On that menu is a link called content.

It's a dropdown. Look for the content type called book. This is the content type to use. It's good because you can write pages and subpages and organize everything. The order can be rearranged.

Let me know it there's any trouble.

Once there's some content we'll find a place to place a link for it

Thanks!
