Bon Jovi's 'listening tour' comes to NJ
NEWARK, N.J. -- Jon Bon Jovi has been taking a break from his worldwide concerts to engage in a different kind of tour - listening to the concerns of young people across the United States.
The rocker visited a youth services center in New Jersey's largest city on Monday as the final stop on a "listening tour with disengaged youth."
It's part of the New Jersey native's role as a member of the White House Council for Community Solutions, which is looking at successful youth programs that can be replicated.
Participants in the Newark session told Bon Jovi that jobs, a lack of mentors for young people and bullying were among their top concerns.
