Youth Leadership Development Programs:
 
 
  • The Building Dreams Mentoring Program is  designed to involve positive role models in the lives of youth and to promote positive cultural  lifestyles.   Educational sessions are provided in the area of alcohol, tobacco and drug prevention. The youth participate in activities that offer preparation for academic excellence and civic leadership.
 
  • The New Bridges Program is an after school program designed to promote growth, learning, and character building.  During group discussions, youth learn life skills that include  effective communication, conflict resolution, anger management, values clarification, decision making, and goal setting.
 
  • Developmental Enrichment activities are a part of both the Building Dreams Mentoring and the New Bridges programs.  These activities include  field trips, college tours, community service, African Dance and Drumming, summer camp, and other positive activities.  Our Youth Slide Show captures a number of developmental enrichment activities that the  youth participated in throughout the year.
