   STAR Leadership Training at Lovin' Life is helping both the young adult STAR Guides who teach the program and the teens who attend find clear purpose and direction in their lives. Here are comments from an interview with STAR Guide Yun-a Johnson (senior, American University):

"I like the emphasis on abstinence education, but I feel that it is really good because it ..gets you thinking about your life and your goals and what you really want to achieve and also it shows the reality of what happens when you get involved in sex before marriage, and stds and AIDs. So I think it's a very holistic program. We also have great opportunities to discuss it, both in interactive lectures and through the sermon before, like a kind of more spiritual aspect. Tell us something about yourself. I am 24, and I waited until marriage. I have been recently married for a year now and definitely waiting until marriage has made my marriage better and more special, I think." Click her for her full comments.

So far, 21 different participants have enjoyed the Leadership Training. One high school participant commented "I like that the program teaches teens my age to keep their virginity sacred". A parent commented "From this program you can learn many things. I love the discussion sessions. It's great to hear out loud the different views people from different backgrounds walk with. It's really refreshing."

STAR Leadership Training continues on Sundays from 5 p.m. to 7:30 p.m., November 27, December 4, and December 11 at the Emergence Community Arts Collective, 733 Euclid St. NW, Washington, DC 20001. Light dinner is served. Pre-registration is not required.

Legislation and Governance

We Need Real Ethics Reform

I agree with DC for Democracy(The Mail, November 13th),that outside employment for Councilmembers should be banned.  The blatant conflicts of interest now seen must be stopped.  Just announcing that you have a conflict of interest, as is now the practice, without any sanction or consequence, is virtually meaningless.  We see David Catania receiving $120,00 per month from OpenBand, LLC, Jack Evans receiving $240,000 per year from law firm Patton Boggs, Michael Brown introducing gambling legislation, seemingly on behalf of the law firm he received $200,000 from, and the list goes on.  One of the qualification for DC Council should not be self-enrichment.  And Muriel Bowser herself, in overseeing the ethics legislation, has serious conflicts of interest herself, as reported in the Washington Times.  Public service means just that, and putting some teeth behind our ethics laws, including an independent ethics panel with enforcement power is the right thing to do.

Email all DC Councilmembers plus the mayor now and ask them to support a bill that provides real ethics reform by using the ULTRA Teen Choice email tool: Click here for the email tool
