National Runaway Prevention Month (NRPM) is here again! I remember last year I wrote a magazine article about NRPM and I hope you all have been contributing your efforts to promoting awareness about runaways and the problems they may face. If not, it is never too late to start! The more people to educate about those who are not yet involved in preventing the youth from ending up running away or homeless, the greater the effects will be. It doesn’t matter if you’re a teenager, a parent, or just a concerned individual — there are many roles for you to take on to promote awareness about runaways and their issues and educate people about it for a greater preventative effect so that we can hopefully see less of today’s youth on the streets. We have promotional materials that you can distribute at your school; there are various local organizations that service the runaway and homeless youth that you can volunteer at; the options are endless. So continue if you have already been spreading the word and start now if you have not!
