Based on your understanding of the topic, create a report in a Microsoft Word document answering the following questions:

How do social and environmental factors affect teens and young adults making healthy or unhealthy decisions? How influential is the family environment?
What motivates teens to form groups and how do negative behaviors increase when teens are involved in small or large gangs?
What specific issues does the U.S. minority population face in terms of health issues, lack of healthcare, and risky behaviors?
What specific type of community program would you develop if you were in charge of improving options for teens and young adults? What community members would you seek to speak with about your program proposal and how important is it to include influential community members who can help support legislation, space, or financial services to help a community program succeed?
How will education reduce risk taking behaviors? What type of follow up and evaluation will you do to ensure a successful program?
