What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Improve literacy to increase academic success for African American and low-performing students. By providing an after school program youth receive assistance with homework assignments and reading and math comprehension. Youth receive guidance in self-development and social skills building confidence and good character. Increase parent participation as volunteers within the local school districts during regular school hours and after school activities. Address the needs of children and youth by providing training for "Mothers in Need of Developing Parenting and Child Development Skills" giving special attention to families within Child Protect Services (CPS). By recruiting career professional volunteers in the areas of education and employment we promote good work ethics and conduct.

What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

PHENOMENAL LEADERS

PHENOMENAL LEADERS is a youth mentorship program focused on self-development, self-preservation and empowerment through discipline, education, economics, community service, career and social development. It is through the challenges of self-efficacy; a person’s belief in their innate ability to accomplish tasks and goals, when a person begins to become self-aware. Self-awareness allows for diversity, which brings about diplomacy, leadership and a desire for a better future. Implementing effective youth leadership programs, not only, create access to valuable mentors, but mentors with career insight and contacts. “Knowledge is key to cultivating a dynasty of leaders”; and inspiring adolescence is how we meet the challenges of today in order to prepare our young leaders for tomorrow. PHENOMENAL LEADERS require phenomenal guidance, phenomenally (Maya Angelou). 2020, 2019, 2016

"CONJUNCTION JUNCTION" SPOTLIGHT is an after school reading program helping students with reading and comprehension. Students practice various reading and writing skills, spelling bee activities, word and phrase defining and singalongs using the world renowned "School House Rock" Saturday morning tutorial programs, making learning fun. As students practice reading, communication, speaking and articulating words properly, their reading and speaking and confidence become stronger. As student reading skills strengthen we explore the meaning of words, phrases and sentences with practical applications. During this after school reading program students are assisted with their homework, participate in activities and learn to work as a team. The after school program, also, provide opportunities for high school students to volunteer and gain community service hours for school credits and meet graduation requirements. 2020, 2017, 2019

Charting impact

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

Meeting the needs of youth improves the quality of life for their families and the community. School age youth are in need of academic improvement, mentorship, self-development, career, life and social skills. Constructing a facilities, such as, homes and youth centers, designated, solely for children and youth up to the ages of 18 would provide housing for homeless and displaced youth and additional classrooms and space for activities and programs not available within the schools.

When we invest in children and youth we increase the value of the community. By building relationships with youth and parents the community increases stakeholder participation.
