BYU-Television begins new season of "Time for Teens"

Guests include Steve Young, Vai Sikahema, Aleisha Rose, Chris Crowe

“You’ve got to try this!” “Wear these clothes!” “Drink that!” Being a teenager is hard. With so many different voices calling young people toward many different paths, stability can be hard to find. But if young people can create a solid foundation during the teen years, they are more likely to find themselves on the road to a successful life.

That is the philosophy behind BYU Television’s "Time for Teens," which begins its new season Thursday, Oct. 6, at 7 p.m. (MT). Each broadcast will be repeated the following Sunday at 2 p.m.

The series features popular speakers like NFL Hall-of-Famer Steve Young, NBA legend Thurl Bailey, BYU physical education professor Barbara Lockhart, and others addressing issues that are important to young people. Themes include “Testimony” and “The Worth of Souls.”

Series producer Jason Parker explains, “We try to find speakers who have experience working with young people and who can bring a unique message which will encourage them to make better choices as they advance through their teen years and beyond.”

Upcoming guests include:

Steve Young (Throwing By Faith), Thurl Bailey (Short Tales, Tall Truths) & Aleisha Rose (Strength Grows from Adversity)

Thursday, Oct. 6, at 7 p.m.

Sunday, Oct. 9, at 2 p.m.

Barbara Lockhart (The Worth of Souls)

Thursday, Oct. 20, at 7 p.m.

Sunday, Oct. 23, at 2 p.m.

Aaron & Jennifer Pond (The Parable of the Belayer)

Thursday, Oct. 27, at p.m.

Sunday, Oct. 30, at p.m.

Vai Sikahema (Testimony)

While the messages are principle-based, they are not your typical speech from a pulpit, said Parker. They are shot from a variety of locations, providing an appropriate setting for each speaker’s words.

The importance of the messages is not lost on the participants. “We tell them [the speakers] the world could be watching so they’d better come prepared to deliver,” Parker said.
