Connecting Faith Radio Show: Preparing Teens for College

logo-header-faithDerek Melleby was featured on the radio show Connecting Faith, a daily program from Faith Radio. Here is the show’s description:

“Navigating transitions can be challenging if there is not a clear sense of direction and a solid foundation from which to move.  And statistics suggest entering college life can be especially difficult for maintaining Christian belief. Having a better understanding of what our teens will experience in college can help us guide them through this transition and we’ll get insight and advice from Derek Melleby, director of the College Transition Initiative for the Center for Parent/Youth Understanding.”
