Mission Statement

To provide qualifying students of the Jeune Hope Chicago Initiative’s Intellectual Practice Program with scholarships from the Rebecca Everlene Trust Company Edie Opportunity, and coaching in the areas of math, science, and writing, while also supporting them through the process of creating a potentially patentable innovation, and/or a publishable piece of writing.    To additionally provide financial support and entrepreneurial coaching for Jeune Hope Chicago Initiative Project RED program participants. Through scholarships from the Edie O. program, and participant fundraising efforts, students who are having a difficult time covering the cost of prom will receive the gift of a dreamy prom evening. Home schooled and ostracized students who may not have had an opportunity to develop friendships that lead to prom dates will also have the ability to request a compatible peer escort via efforts of the program.

Ms. Tamara Daniels

Term:

Since Aug 2012

Profile:

My experience ranges from managing a 1.2 million dollar budget, to coaching writing students at Yale University, and managing a team of more than 100 employees. Additionally, I am the first student from the University of Illinois at Champaign-Urbana to graduate with two Bachelor’s from my college. I am a results-oriented manager who is broadminded and technical. I am a resourceful team leader, and recruit, coach and develop team members. I am forward thinking, detail-oriented, and have the ability to logically solve complex problems. I am a customer focused administrator and efficient producer, and additionally an adaptable, ambitious communicator who collaborates with staff. I have more than 15 years of knowledge and experience as a supervisor and a proven record of preparing and tracking budgets. Because of my experience, I am able to think more strategically and creatively, which helps me skillfully balance and manage social relationships. It has also taught me how to operate effectively under immense pressure, while managing and prioritizing work on multiple projects.

Leadership Statement:

Letter from the CEO: I’m excited to have an opportunity to introduce the world to the Intellectual Practice, Project RED and Edie Opportunity Programs. Over the years, I’ve come across many brilliant students who weren’t given a chance to live up to their full potential because they didn’t have access to the proper coaching and/or couldn’t find the money to pursue their dreams. Because of our programs, more than 20 students will be able to attend prom, and receive entrepreneurial training. To add, another 45 will have access to extraordinary mentors that will help them develop marketable projects during a yearlong program. Financial assistance for college is going to become more difficult for people to obtain in the future. Hence, our programs aim to fill in the gap in that regard. They also assist with college preparedness, encourage innovation, foster literacy, nurture entrepreneurial skills, and reinforce artistic abilities. In the past, funding for the programs has come from monies and items that our board members have supplied on an as needed basis. To cover our operational costs, we’ve done everything that we can to make sure that our expenses are kept as low as possible, and have invested lots of time and energy into seeking out high quality technology, accounting, and communication systems that are free, and further contribute to the efficiency and expansion of our organization. With that being said, I am proud to put my name on this program, and I am elated to be able to work with a group of phenomenally talented people, who have the fortitude and aptitude to make this a noteworthy project. Kind regards,Tamara C. Daniels

Programs

Program: Intellectual Practice Science Program (GuideStar Exchange,
The GuideStar Exchange allows nonprofits to regularly update key information directly to GuideStar. It provides richer and broader information about their programs, impact, finances, people and more.
March 2013)

Budget:
$559,962
Category:
Science & Technology
Population Served:
Children Only (5 - 14 years)
Ethnic/Racial Minorities -- General
General Public/Unspecified

Program Description:

Emphasis will be placed on nurturing each student's strengths, and individual differences. Students will study concepts such as systems, change in patterns, and models. An emphasis will be placed on higher-level thinking, activity-based learning, and engaging students in the doing aspect of research via modular materials, particularly in the area of problem solving. Students will use technology as a tool and participate in activity-based learning by using real world problems and solving societal issues. Assessment of learning will include tracking of a portfolio, in addition to the maintenance of individual logs and reports, which will demonstrate the thinking processes necessary for doing work in a given discipline (e.g. inference, deductive reasoning, and the evaluation of arguments). Students will engage in planning and carrying out original research that will be monitored by highly qualified mentors and coaches with the goal in mind of developing a patentable invention.

Program Long-Term Success:

Program will create 3 full-time salaried positions, which will allow volunteer staff to become core staff members. It will also create 7 part-time mentoring/tutoring positions, and provide consistent hourly pay in lieu of stipends.

Program Short-Term Success:

In the Intellectual Practice Program, there is a 2:1 student per teacher ratio. The purpose behind this is to make sure that students have at least one study buddy that they can reach out to for assistance whenever a tutor is unreachable outside of tutoring hours. Sometimes it is also easier for students to connect to material when the company of a peer is involved. The Intellectual Practice Program focuses on three specific subjects in particular, which include math, science and writing, which are all extremely necessary skills to help students do well academically, in life and on standardized tests. We are also the only program in Chicago that offers students assistance with developing a project that could lead to an invention.

Program Success Monitored by:

Success of the program will be monitored by an outside consulting firm that will conduct assessments and published reports for project stakeholders to review. An increase in student capacity for learning, in addition to project completion and project publication metrics, will also play a significant role in determining the success of the program. Consistent and recurring enrollment will additionally be a determining factor.

Program Success Examples:

Competitors of the Intellectual Practice Program charge anywhere from $40-$75/hr for tutoring and cover a wide range of subjects. Their main focus is offering bulk tutoring at privatized rates. While their tutors are degreed and appear qualified, there is no evidence that any of the staff members have teaching backgrounds or the people skills needed to nurture a student to success. Teaching is a skill and all of the volunteers and mentors on our staff have this experience. Our mentors and coaches are also degreed and our fees are more than reasonable. Hourly rates for Intellectual Practice Tutoring are $15-$25/hr. We also offer subsidized rates and scholarships for students as well.

Mentors and coaches will use subject specific models to teach principles that help students realize patterns, generalizations, and measurement in conjunction with various other research, algebra, operation, and probability learning techniques. Program scoring and progress will be based on demonstrated advancement in project concepts, communication and vocabulary through the use of math journals and incremental learning strategies.

Program Long-Term Success:

Program will create 3 full-time salaried positions, which will allow volunteer staff to become core staff members. It will also create 7 part-time mentoring/tutoring positions, and provide consistent hourly pay in lieu or stipends.

Program Description:

Emphasis will be placed on helping students develop a love of literature, poetry, and language, while also enhancing student leadership skills, self-confidence and peer relations through the completion of student-centered writing projects. Students will be encouraged to write about science, philosophy, religion, history, playwrights and contemporary thought with a goal in mind of creating a publishable novel or children's book. Students will also be encouraged to write biographies and autobiographies, letters, and other meaningful sketches that allow them to discover who they are, help them deal with life's challenges, discover where they belong in the world and what they are capable of achieving. Journal writing, public performances, the publishing of work in printed anthologies, and in the online environment will help students develop strong literacy and communication skills by placing emphasis on the use of proper grammar and punctuation. Novice experience is not required. As long as a student has a passion for language and loves words, we will be happy to work with him/her.

Program Long-Term Success:

Program: Project RED-- Rebecca Everlene Dream (GuideStar Exchange,
The GuideStar Exchange allows nonprofits to regularly update key information directly to GuideStar. It provides richer and broader information about their programs, impact, finances, people and more.
March 2013)

Budget:
$542,425
Category:
Youth Development
Population Served:
Youth/Adolescents only (14 - 19 years)
Ethnic/Racial Minorities -- General
General Public/Unspecified

Program Description:

The PROJECT RED (Rebecca Everlene Dream) program strives to provide financial assistance to teens who anticipate having a difficult time covering the cost of prom and/or finding a prom date. The Spaulding & Daniels Leadership Group Partners coach and support program participants through a series of fundraising efforts and provide them with networking opportunities to help them connect with other teens who might be in the same situation.

Program Long-Term Success:

Program will create 4 full-time paid positions, which will allow volunteer staff to be promoted to core staff members. One of these positions will be specifically designated for an apprenticeship position that will allow a grade school and/or high school level student to receive additional mentoring and training that will hopefully lead to long-term employment. Hours completed while on the project will help students fulfill the 40 hour high school community service requirement.

Program Short-Term Success:

Competitors of the Project RED program offer free prom assistance to high school students, which is a positive. They do not require students to provide any type of documentation to confirm hardship or passing grades. Their target audience consists of female high school students only, and the male population is completely overlooked. Mentoring and educational programming is provided, but very minimally. The Project RED program not only serves both male and female students, but also provides programmatic opportunities that count towards student high school community service requirements. Although there is a cost for enrolling in the program, Project RED offers subsidized rates and scholarships for students who can't afford to cover the entire cost of attending.

Program Success Monitored by:

Success of the program will be monitored by an outside consulting firm that will conduct assessments and provide published reports for project stakeholders to review. Growth in student and programmatic fundraising totals will also play a significant role in determining the success of the program. Enrollment and student completion of the program hours will additionally be a determining factor.

Program Success Examples:

According to experts, the average student needs around $1100 to attend prom, and that's on the low end. In this economy, many parents can't afford to cover these costs. Project RED would be one out of four other programs that are fully operational in the Chicago area. We would also only be competing against one other organization that combines prom help with programmatic offerings. Stats: -According to the Chicago Public Schools and Great Schools websites, there are 145 public high schools in Chicago, in addition to 137 private schools.-For the 2011-2012 academic school year, it was reported that 113,873 students attended school at the secondary level and this is just in the Chicago Public School system alone.-One of our competitors reports having assisted more than 17,000 students between the years of 1999 and 2012. That's only 1308 students per year compared to the 113,873 that will be matriculating through high school within the next 3 years.-Because there is an overwhelming need for assistance, two additional community programs have sprouted from the aforementioned programs' efforts, but the new programs are also lacking in a handful of very strong aspects, as stated in the short term success section of our narrative. With only 3 operating programs being available in Chicago, I'm certain that our funders will see that there is a need for programs like ours, and that we will not only be able to assist a number of students through providing prom assistance, in completing community service hours, and by providing entrepreneurial development, but also by employing talented individuals who have been out of work and those that are passionate about our cause.

Program: Edie Opportunity Scholarship (GuideStar Exchange,
The GuideStar Exchange allows nonprofits to regularly update key information directly to GuideStar. It provides richer and broader information about their programs, impact, finances, people and more.
March 2013)

Budget:
$487,830
Category:
Philanthropy, Voluntarism & Grantmaking
Population Served:
Children Only (5 - 14 years)
Youth/Adolescents only (14 - 19 years)
Ethnic/Racial Minorities -- General

Program Description:

Project Edie O, is based on the educational premise that each invention or discovery is the result of acknowledging eleven core principles of effective character education. Because each advancement towards a possibility is subconsciously fueled by the desire for social change, it is our belief that students of this mindset and caliber should not be financially limited in pursuing their dreams. In recognition of these beliefs, students who have been accepted into the Intellectual Practice and Project RED Programs of the Jeune Hope Chicago Initiative, will be given an opportunity to apply for the scholarship.

Program Long-Term Success:

Program will create 4 full-time salaried positions, which will allow volunteer staff to become core staff members. Anticipated growth in federal and privatized funding will also allow us to provide scholarships to the expected 60+ students who are admitted into Jeune Hope Chicago Initiative programs.

Program Short-Term Success:

Donations for the 2013-2014 academic school year will allow us to fund 25% of our students who will receive free coaching, and further allow us to gift subsidized tutoring rates to other needy individuals.

Program Success Monitored by:

Success of the program will be monitored by an outside consulting firm that will conduct assessments and provide published reports for project stakeholders to review. An increase in student capacity for learning, in addition to project completion and project publication metrics, will also play a significant role in determining the success of the program. Consistent and recurring enrollment will additionally be a determining factor.

Program Success Examples:

According to the Chicago Public Schools website, 87% of high school students come from low-income families. Granting scholarship opportunities to these students will allow us to provide much needed mentorship and support outside of school, through programs that aim to give them secure futures.
