The Bible has much to say to young men. This is not an all-inclusive listing but a sampling of what Scripture has to say to young men.
"Urge young men to be sensible...an example of good deeds with purity in doctrine, dignified, sound in speech which is beyond reproach, in order that the opponent may be put to shame, having nothing bad to say about you."
"Let no one look down on your youthfulness, but rather in speech, conduct, love, faith and purity, show yourself an example to those who believe." I Timothy 4:12
"Flee from youthful lusts..." II Tim. 2:22
"You younger men, be subject to your elders.." I Peter 5:5
"Though youths grow weary and tired, and vigorous young men stumble badly, yet those who wait for the Lord, will gain new strength; they will run and not get tired; they will walk and not become weary." Isaiah 40:30-31
"A poor, yet wise lad is better than an old and foolish king who no longer knows how to receive instruction." Ecclesiastes 4:13
"Remember also your creator in the days of your youth, before the evil days come and the years draw near when you will say, 'I have no delight in them.'"
"And I discerned among the youths, a young man lacking sense." Proverbs 7:7
"It is by his deeds that a lad distinquishes himself if his conduct is pure and right." Proverbs 20:ll
"Be on the alert, stand firm in the faith, act like men, be strong." I Corinthians 16:13

I liked the idea of finding Bible verse that talk to the younger generation. My suggestion would be to expand these verse by giving examples for them. Or you could take one verse, share a personal story about what it means to you. Translate the story back into the scripture and end with a prayer. This would be a great format for a Young Men's Daily Devotions.
For example after the 1 Timothy verse, write something like this: Tyler teased his younger brother, John. Names like baby and Mama's boy were hurled at the youngster. He knew with Jesus as his protector, he could cope with these taunts. Every night he told his brother that he loved him then before sleep overcame him he prayed fervently that God would soothe his brother's anger.
I know it's a tad lame. I did it fast. If your desire is to just have a list of scriptures for young men to read in a time in need just add a few words before quoting it.For example: WHEN YOUR PARENTS FRUSTRATE YOU REMEMBER: "You younger men, be subject to your elders.." I Peter 5:5
I love your passion to help young boys get through difficult times. It's obvious you care deeply. Keep writing!
