Next Step #109: Ara Arzumanian of Generation Next is our guest. He discusses his article “Lost Kids of Armenian America”. Working with young people on the streets of Glendale, Ara gives a unique perspective of a growing problem, including drugs, sexual promiscuity, theft, gangs, and violence. A small glimpse at the kids and one man’s crusade to educate and mentor. Empty egos, identity and self-knowledge are all part of the discussion along with an added bonus: a primer on V-techs and Armos and the White washed.
