    I being pulled in the direction of going in business for myself. I just simply do not know where to start. I would love to reach out to preteens and teens to steer them towards not becoming a mother at a young age. I have do some research and I know there is a lot of grant money
    to help but I do not have the skills to write a grant. I have been calling trying to find out someone who is giving free grant writing classes, but have had no luck. I moved back to a small town from Atlanta, GA, and I just see some much I can do with the young people and I just not sure in which direction I should start.

    I have also witness a lack of office and computer skills with young mothers who feel they
    have no other choice but to work at a fast food chain for the rest of their lives. Moving to Atlanta gave me skills I would have never learned
    had I never left Yazoo City, MS. The young people
    in my small town lack skills, positive thinking,hope,self-confidence, and direction.

    It would also be helpful if the books geared towards children, tweens and teens could be identified.
