Many young people are not invested in their learning. They may not make the connection between their actions now and how they will impact the future. Students that take part in risky behaviors may be ‘scared straight’ by visiting and assisting in homeless shelters with recovering drug addicts and alcoholics. Students who are considering dropping out of school can talk to unemployed people who wish they had a second chance at getting an education. By seeing the hardships that could be their own future, students can learn the importance of working hard in school and avoiding risky and inappropriate behaviors.
