What curriculum is used for the mentoring program?
The curriculum is researched-based, in which there are five identified types of risk for at-risk students. Depending upon where each student lies on this continuum, there are four different approaches that we apply to prevent, intervene, or treat at-risk behavior. Workshops address topics under the umbrella of our core values: Integrity, Discipline, Education, and Ambition.
Are there going to be meetings outside of schools or inside of schools? How does a student get into the program?
We plan to meet in buildings in the local communities (public library, local schools, or community centers). Our organization will make contact with schools in target counties to share our information with educators, parents, guardians of at-risk boys in middle or high school. If interested in our program, parents should contact our organization for a phone consultation or click here to fill out our interest form.
Will there be large group meetings or will this program only consist of students working in small groups?
At times, there will be meetings that require a whole-group setting. However, one of the goals of our organization is to connect the youth with leaders and mentors in their communities, to leverage the power of mentorship. Click here for more information regarding the power of mentors.
