Why you ask? Well there is so much talent by our youngsters out there that isn't being seen... So YSTS is giving the youth a platform to showcase their talents with with a FREE audition on May 21st! Networking is not only for us adults, but building positive relationships with kids is an even more positive initiative. Purple Lavish Kids Foundation and YSTS presents: Stop Bullying & Violence. This event was brought to NGA-Radio and one we took a look at the website and what they were all about... We instantly jumped aboard 1000%. They will have a number of speakers offering educational information, support, and motivation throughout this event. The speakers will include celebrities, health care professionals, motivational speakers, college representatives, and bullying and suicide prevention specialists. They are seeking kids who have talents in rap, singers of all genres, poets, dance, public speakers, musicians, and models to audition.
Our Mission is to inspire kids to say no to bullying and violence. Young Sensations Talent Search will show children the glorification of being different by giving them the chance to be the stars at this event. This event will also motivate kids to make better choices as they develop into young adults.
There are many parents out there who understand what bullying does to a child, aside from the humiliation...it takes away their sense of identity and causes some to become introverted or turn for the worse and act out in ways that are harmful to others or themselves as we seen in previous news with a suicide in Atlanta because of excessive bullying.
Dan Olweus, creator of the Olweus Bullying Prevention Program said "A person is bullied when he or she is exposed, repeatedly and over time, to negative actions on the part of one or more other persons, and he or she has difficulty defending himself or herself."
This definition includes three important components:
1. Bullying is aggressive behavior that involves unwanted, negative actions.
2. Bullying involves a pattern of behavior repeated over time.
3. Bullying involves an imbalance of power or strength.
Updates on auditions coming soon...
Peace and Love
