People ask me all the time, how do today's young people, especially those living in the most chaotic and violent regions of the world, find the strength to overcome the enormous challenges and disappointments in their lives? How do they regain their balance, build up their confidence, and imagine a brighter future? There are no simple answers, of course. But we do know programs that give young men and women a sense of empowerment and hope are making a real difference in lives and communities everywhere.
