JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) -

Around 100 young men packed into Arkansas State University’s football facility Friday afternoon as part of a teen summit by the Men on a Mission.

Men on a Mission is a faith-based organization that strives to build up men so they can give back to the community.

Colby Parker, executive director of the group, said they focused Friday on empowering young teens.

A-State Head Football Coach Blake Anderson spoke to the group.

“He spoke to them about leadership and about the importance of making good decisions,” Parker said. “He referenced bad decisions, being messy like toothpaste and it was a really good illustration, and we’ll try to post it on our page so people can see it, but it was really informative.”

Regions Bank also sent a representative to talk to the teens on how to protect themselves from identity theft.
