***NEW*** Youth Ministry / Parent Ministry Resource from CPYU: College Transition Initiative

This week I received an email from CPYU (Center for Parent/Youth Understanding), telling me some exciting news about a new initiative they have created.

They have created a great website that provide parents and youth workers with pertinent information, resources, and research concerning students who are heading off to college (or are currently in college).

I could tell you more about it, but instead I will let Walt Mueller tell you more: 

The College Transition Initiative grew out of CPYU’s desire to help students make the most of their college years. Sadly, many of the stories I was hearing supported research indicating that high school students were not transitioning well to college. Many of those students were facing problems and issues that could have been avoided if they and their parents had taken time to be more prepared. I am confident that the resources provided by CTI prepares Christian students and parents to bring Glory to God during some of the most formative years of a young person’s life. I’m also excited about the role Derek Melleby plays as the Director of CTI. Derek knows college students and the difficulties they willface. He has a heart to see students and their families more spiritually prepared for life after high school.

    Looks good Pastor-is this a publication, a group? Could you give me more details? A very important subject-thanks for looking into it!

    Gwen, it’s a website that provides regular articles, research, and resources for parents and students who are college bound or are in college. They provide resources that are practical and spiritually focused. Take a look at their website: http://www.collegetransitioninitiative.com/

    Thanks for spreading the word, Phil!

    Gwen, the College Transition Initiative is a project of the Center for Parent/Youth Understanding (www.cpyu.org). CPYU’s mission is to work with churches, schools, and community organizations to build stronger relationships between young people and those charged with helping them grow into healthy adulthood. A few years ago CPYU identified “college transition” and “lasting faith” as a key area in the lives of teens that needed attention and resources.

    Hope that helps!

    Thanks Derek! That is a much better explanation! Thanks for your work in this area! It is so crucial! We hope to have you come our way one of these days to Michigan. We’ll be in touch!
