With adolescents and youth comprising 36 percent of its population, the Dominican Republic faces great potential, but also significant risk. Economic and social conditions in this Caribbean nation of approximately 10 million people are such that a significant percentage of all Dominican youth are at risk of unemployment, drug abuse, sex trafficking, crime, a lack of education, or other pitfalls of poverty. In , the U. Agency for International Development USAID launched Alerta Joven, an initiative that uses the power of technology and the strength of local networks to help connect young people with services tailored to their specific needs, putting them on the path to a productive future.

Hi everyone - like you all, I have been finding it hard dating my boyfriend who is a doctor. The submariner's wives are in a similar situation. As a non-Mormon male widower Catholic contemplating marrying a devout temple recommended widow, I thank you all for the wonderful blog.
But there are many people on here who truly devoutly believed in Mormonism and broke free. For the official Church websites, please visit LDS. Should we try to heed their counsel and marry in the Church. But what does it really mean to be a patriarch, to lead your tribe. So there's THAT to look forward to. It will help to come in armed with everything I'm learning from the different perspectives on here though. And of course we have been taughtвby Brigham Young, at leastвthat even when Christ comes during the Millenium there will be those who will not accept him as their Savior even if they accept him as the leader of the world. My husband not only supports me going to church he encourages it because he knows that it is a part of me and makes me happy. Having said that I'm not looking to get married any time soon, so no. However, I'm going to show him your post tonight and hopefully he will agree that it's worth a try.
