equipping youth with knowledge and insight
We have an extensive curriculum for both girls and boys that provide a strong foundation for succeeding in life. We have courses in leadership, social responsibility, and life lessons that focus on doing the right thing, learning how to handle different situations, and the preparation of what happens beyond high school.
Mentoring That Actively Supports Education
The mentoring needs of youth who demonstrate the early signs of falling off track to graduate are not being fully met. A powerful research base shows that attendance, behavior, and course performance in reading and math (“the ABCs”) are highly predictive of a student’s likelihood to graduate from high school, and that early interventions can get students back on track — while saving schools money. Mentoring can be a powerful early intervention, and more students with these risk factors could benefit from getting the preventive mentoring support they need.
