Programs and results

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

J5 Experience builds a stronger bond between mothers and daughters using the 2 Gen Approach. It becomes more difficult to reach a child if you do not have the parent onboard.

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

Girls Achievement Program

Girls Achievement Program (G.A.P), mentors students and partners with their parents in an effort to overcome barriers to maintain school readiness, acceptable school attendance and as well as opportunities to eliminate the summer slide. J5 meets weekly with the girls and quarterly with both mentee's and their mothers for activities to increase a stronger bond. This component provides weekly mentoring to the girls via volunteers, who are certified teachers and counselors at their school. This essential component is ongoing throughout the school year with measurable improvements of the student’s emotional, social and academic progress.  During the summer months, students are encouraged to participate in a “Summer Educational Programs” that promote academic growth in order to avoid the academic decline. Students and parents must participate in the "Back to School Kick Off" in order to receive the grade level supplies for school preparedness.

The Dream Board program uses a two-gen approach which focuses on empowering students and their mothers to mentally prepare for personal, educational and career goals.  According to a study conducted by Gail Matthews at Dominican University, “Those who wrote down their goals accomplished significantly more than those who did not write down their goals”.  This is done through a four-step approach that is clear and measurable:  1. Create a Vision, 2. Make it Measurable 3. Set Benchmarks and 4. Celebrate Your Success.

The Mother-Daughter Tea, utilizes a two-generation approach in providing information during a social setting. Participants focus on appropriate etiquette such as verbal exchange, introductions, hand shaking, posture and general manners for life- long experiences. This program allows girls the opportunity to dress up and attend an attractive venue while developing a stronger bond with their mother. Through this program, we demonstrate proper etiquettes and promote open communication through love within the family. Since many girls are challenged by everyday life to experience a truly unique and intimate moment with their mother, we strive to present a meaningful and elegant event they’ll always cherish.

Charting impact

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

J5 aims to build a stronger foundation between mothers and daughters while promoting them reaching their perspective dreams. We are Dream Pushers and acknowledge that with assistance and goal setting, they can accomplish anything they set their minds to. For the mentees who aren’t directly in the classrooms of mentors, we still make a point to interact with them at least 3 to 4 times a day. In addition, we also serve as a second point of contact in assisting with their educational needs if a teacher is having a difficult time contacting the parent(s).

J5 has strategically paired our mentors (teachers) at the school with a mentee. The mentee is required to check-in with their mentors in the morning and at the end of the day.

J5 is capable of achieving this by having monthly 1:1 in-depth meetings with our mentees and quarterly meetings with both the mothers and mentees. The mentors themselves meet with mentees daily. The mentors check to make sure their mentees are doing what’s required of them by their teachers and serve as a second authority figure in assisting with their continuing education. Our initiatives include; educational, financial and career builder’s. Through programming, these initiatives assist in enhancing our organizations abilities to serve our mentees and contribute to their life skills.

Our mentees have maintained their necessary gains on i-Ready in order to be promoted to the next grade level. We have recommended that our parents enroll their child in our afterschool tutoring program rather than other programs so that we know our mentees are being tutored by certified teachers that know and understand the current curriculum being taught.

Balance sheet

Fiscal Year: Jan 01 - Jan 01

SOURCE: IRS Form 990 info

The balance sheet gives a snapshot of the financial health of an organization at a particular point in time. An organization's total assets should generally exceed its total liabilities, or it cannot survive long, but the types of assets and liabilities must also be considered. For instance, an organization's current assets (cash, receivables, securities, etc.) should be sufficient to cover its current liabilities (payables, deferred revenue, current year loan, and note payments). Otherwise, the organization may face solvency problems. On the other hand, an organization whose cash and equivalents greatly exceed its current liabilities might not be putting its money to best use.
