Programs and results

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

C2k Ministries finds that many kids today struggle academically and socially. Our organization provides tools and resources to help them overcome challenges giving them a chance to be successful in life. One program, RE:Direct After School Program, serves children ages 5-15 in the city of Mound Bayou, MS.According to the US Census, the population ofMoundBayou for 2015 is approximately 1,473.According to kidscount.org, 51.4% of children in Mound Bayou live below the poverty level, and 25.3% of children in Bolivar County live below the poverty level. The children in Mound Bayou lives have been ravaged by the effects of poverty. Many of the children in Mound Bayou have fallen prey to teen parenthood and juvenile delinquency, which could increase the probability of drop-out. Although parents have the desire to help their children academically, many of them are unable to, due to a lack of education and literacy.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

There is a great divide in our academic systems. Impoverished areas like ours suffer from proper funding. Our accountability programs for that funding are under-resourced at best. Because of the system, our children are programmed to pass state tests so that the school district gets funded. In other words, we are not teaching kids to learn. We are preparing kids to regurgitate information for the sake of a test and funding.

Our goal and aim are to unlock the learning potential inside of a child and teach them how to process the information given.

The disparity between the resources in a wealthy community and a poor one is significant. We want to close that gap by providing our students with the same tools and resources that a prosperous community would have. By providing our students with those resources, we believe that more kids have a chance of escaping the cycle of poverty, and will grow up to be a responsible citizen, father, mother, parent, and grandparent who can positively affect change in their community.

Our holistic after-school program called RE:Direct is one example. Four days a week we two hours with 25, under-resourced students. During that time our students are fed, mentored, tutored with homework, work on a laptop with a reading comprehension program, , and provided an art activity or some free time to be a kid.

Delta Leadership Academy is a 3 year program for grades 9-12. The program provides leadership training and discussion, money management skills, investing skills, ACT prep materials & online courses, college visits, grade accountability, application prep, all geared to give students a chance to get into college.

Our strategies are to provide the resources necessary to make all of this happen so that our kids are afforded the same chance as others.

We have an active community of people that stand for what we are doing. This ranges from our school system to parents and local leaders.

We will continue to build upon our strong team. Our staff will need to increase as well as volunteer development.

1. The program had a total of 106 volunteers with 72% volunteering more than once.
2. A total of 168 students were served with 72% of them being our target grades of K-4.
3. 78% of the students served saw an increase in grades in two or more classes.
6. 100% Students grades were at a "C" grade or higher.
7. All students served were promoted to their next grade. No child was left behind.
8. 100% of our students have increased in math and reading proficiency.
9. 100% of our students outperform their peer group in grades.

GuideStar partnered with Equity in the Center - an organization that works to shift mindsets, practices, and systems to increase racial equity - to create this section. Learn more

Data
  • We review compensation data across the organization (and by staff levels) to identify disparities by race.
  • We analyze disaggregated data and root causes of race disparities that impact the organization's programs, portfolios, and the populations served.
  • We disaggregate data to adjust programming goals to keep pace with changing needs of the communities we support.
  • We employ non-traditional ways of gathering feedback on programs and trainings, which may include interviews, roundtables, and external reviews with/by community stakeholders.
  • We disaggregate data by demographics, including race, in every policy and program measured.
  • We have long-term strategic plans and measurable goals for creating a culture such that one’s race identity has no influence on how they fare within the organization.
Policies and processes
  • We use a vetting process to identify vendors and partners that share our commitment to race equity.
  • We have a promotion process that anticipates and mitigates implicit and explicit biases about people of color serving in leadership positions.
  • We seek individuals from various race backgrounds for board and executive director/CEO positions within our organization.
  • We have community representation at the board level, either on the board itself or through a community advisory board.
  • We help senior leadership understand how to be inclusive leaders with learning approaches that emphasize reflection, iteration, and adaptability.
  • We measure and then disaggregate job satisfaction and retention data by race, function, level, and/or team.
  • We engage everyone, from the board to staff levels of the organization, in race equity work and ensure that individuals understand their roles in creating culture such that one’s race identity has no influence on how they fare within the organization.
