Charting impact

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

Our organization firmly believes that addressing these problems will decrease if quality education, positive role models, and hope are made available to the children of our communities. Teen Summits are not just projects; they are the Mission of Hey My Child. Team Summits motivate youth to pursue education, information, skills, develop career goals, increase their employability, and become financially independent. As a by-product, students/youth build bridges with positive role models. Teen Summits provides a comprehensive program linking education, mentoring, and counseling for the most at-risk youth. In the past, we have hosted Teen Summits quarterly; however, because of the increased need, we will host Teen Summits every other month in 2020. During pass Teen Summits we have discovered that bullying, depression, and suicide plague our youth, their poor coping skills and lack of conflict resolution abilities often leads to violence toward and self. Bullying, depression, and suicide are all major issues that come up in the Teen Summits we have hosted. We are adjusting our programs to cover these issues by hosting Teen Summits that address them. Collaborating with mental health professionals such as mental health counselors and psychiatrists. Our board members have over 43 years of mental health experience in the way of nursing.

Our unique program involves at-risk youth, parents, school counselors, mentors, outreach programs and transportation. Teen Summit has incorporated a "Commitment to Succeed Contracts" and we address each participates individual needs. Partnering with parents/guardians, counselors, mentors tutors, and psychiatrists that have like goals of Hey My Child. Each youth that volunteers to participate in the program will sign the "commitment to Success Contracts along with their parents/guardians. Provide each participant with tutoring, counseling, and or mentorship. Monthly contact with parent/guardian, participant, tutors, school counselors, outpatient counselors, and mentors (more frequently if needed). And activities (charter fishing trips, camping, attending professional sporting events, father-daughter dance, mother-son soiree, ext) as positive feedback.

We collaborator with the community, schools, counselors, parents, tutors and other organizations with like missions and goals.
