Building H.I.S. Character Education & Youth Development

We believe that building good character in our youth is of the utmost importance. Good character helps in all spheres of life. Research shows that effective mentoring will more likely eliminate school drop outs, involvement in crime, and drug abuse. Youth that are mentored are more likely to improve their academic performance, have better decision-making skills, self-confidence, and sense of belonging. They also have better relationships with parents, teachers, and peers and are also more likely to attend and graduate from college.

Life skills group sessions include various topics, relevant scenario discussions, accountability standards, and exercises to give positive direction to our young men as they journey through one of the most critical periods of their lives. They are given guidance while relating to one another, discovering they are not alone, but most importantly there is support on their journey in life.

Educational sessions are focused on assisting our youth in achieving higher academic skills. Grades are monitored throughout the school year, tutoring sessions and test taking skills are provided, and assistance with preparation for standardized testing and graduation exams. When necessary, we request mentor/teacher conferences to ensure our young men are obtaining the standards inside the classroom as well.

Building character exercises are incorporated in their daily routines that will assist them with social skills, academic needs, and personal life skill issues.

In efforts to cultivate our youth’s passions and interest, we are providing job shadowing opportunities, scholarships for classes, workshops, and camps that will educate and expose them to their potential goals in life.

We also incorporate community service projects throughout the year instilling the importance of giving back to the community Educational, cultural, and social trips are also taken to ensure our youth are exposed to a variety of possibilities life has to offer.

Graduates are rewarded with scholarships for successfully completing the program, with continued support as they continue their college experiences.
