To create a safe and drug free community where all children, especially those at risk for delinquency, academic failure or victimization have opportunities to build resiliency and character and all adults feel empowered to help them.
WHAT WE DO:
Connect responsible adults to youth in K-12th grades for one to one mentoring relationships through our Kids in the Middle (KIM), Mentoring Adolescents in Careers and Character (MAC2) , and At Promise Academy (APA) mentoring programs. Our highly qualified staff fully supports and trains volunteer mentors. Learn how you can become a mentor
We provide guidance and resources on integrating the Six Pillars of Character ( trustworthiness, respect, responsibility, fairness, caring, citizenship) or other proven character education models into school and the community.
We work with like-minded partners on special projects, with the goal of decreasing substance abuse, school failure and teen pregnancy while increasing good citizenship.
Research is clear: the human brain is wired for relationships. When young people are bonded to trustworthy adults, powered by positive messages and given valued roles in society, they are significantly less likely to use drugs or drop out of school.
