Coming up to the day she had been waiting for, 21-year-old Michelle Harrison didn’t realize what a big deal it was until she received a text message telling her how proud her father was of her. After living on the streets in Costa Mesa, becoming addicted to drugs and going in and out of jail, Harrison graduated from the Orange County Conservation Corps on Friday with a high school diploma, a job, money for college and two years of sobriety...

One of the silliest things graduates are told is "Now, you're entering the real world." High school is the real world. There are real pains and struggles, love and triumph. What graduates are entering is the real world without a safety net. Most parents make sure their children have enough to eat and a place to sleep. But soon these graduates are on their own, responsible for their everyday lives and their future. To graduates, that lack of a safety net translates into freedom.

MICHELE MARR Seven years ago, when Jeff Ludington began to look for a place where he could deepen his relationship with God, he had a tough time finding a church that meshed with his style -- until he stumbled on ROCKharbor Church in Costa Mesa. At ROCKharbor, the music was loud and a lot like the music Ludington chose to listen to in his car. The pastor's teachings connected to his questions about God and with his concerns about how to live in this world.

Angelique Flores HUNTINGTON BEACH -- Lilia Lamas dropped off her 1974 Plymouth Valiant to be serviced at Total Car Care, but the mechanics at the Surf City automotive shop offered more than she expected. They gave her a genaerous helping of free labor through Pathways to Independence, a nonprofit group that helps struggling young adults get through school and on the road to self-sufficiency. Dave Bishop founded the organization nine years ago. The retired principal at a continuation school in Los Alamitos came up with the idea after taking in a former student who was unable to support herself and her 2-year-old daughter.

If you've been doing a little shopping at South Coast Plaza and noticed the children's arts and crafts and live performances near the carousel, that's because it's September. And thanks to Sandy Segerstrom Daniels, the founder and executive director of the Festival of Children Foundation, this month has been designated by Congress as National Child Awareness Month for the fifth year in a row. The foundation began more than 10 years ago to connect children's organizations with one another, helping them expand their resources and maximize benefits.

Michele Marr There's a new church in town. It's called The Sanctuary, and its members mean it to be exactly that. It will be a place of worship, worship they envision touching Heaven and changing Earth. It will be a safe place, a sound place, a place to build a relationship with God and friendships with others -- a place to find answers and acceptance, compassion and hope. It will be a church whose head is Jesus, whose help is the Holy Spirit and whose focus is Christ's great commission -- to make disciples for him. A core team -- 150 adults, teenagers and children -- has been meeting and laying the foundation for the church since last summer.

Sitting around long wooden tables for a meeting are six normal looking college students, but these young adults don?t just go to class and then leave ? they manage a six-figure budget and oversee all campus events. The Associated Students of Golden West College Student Council members are elected into office by their peers, govern under a set of bylaws and vote to approve or deny issues that effect every student at the college. The students have the chance to gain experiences and insight into the college that very few students do. The opportunity to be on the council has taught Council President Lyvyane Tran, 20, how to communicate, leadership skills and professionalism through leadership conferences and training in governance from their advisor.

After almost 10 years of not living with the ’rents — I’m back. Before you judge me, this is a temporary “get on my feet, save some money, figure out my life” decision that makes sense to me as a responsible, rational adult. Man, I had no idea what I was getting myself into here. You know that cliché “You can never go home again.” Well, there’s some truth to that in a way I never imagined. My mother, God love her, seems to have forgotten that I am not 15. This means that my curfew is not 10 p.m. I like boys and I have lived on my own for the past decade, which means I know how to wash dishes, do my laundry, lock the door and make dinner.

When local musician Jeremy Ashida goes off to tour the Midwest this summer, he won’t have a tour bus — he won’t even book any hotel rooms. To find a place to rest his head each night, the 23-year-old plans to rely on the kindness of fans and new friends. If he gets stuck without a bed, he’s also bringing a tent. Making new friends comes easily to Ashida; thanks to his social networking efforts, his music page has had millions of hits on MySpace — primarily from teens, tweens and young adults — and he’s sold tens of thousands of songs on iTunes.
