Mentoring Programs

A Brief Program Description

Through group mentoring and One-to-One mentoring, Youth Guidance works with children from low-income, single-parent homes to build a path out of poverty, develop assets associated with successful adult lives, and ensure graduation from high school. When a child enrolls in the Mentoring Academy, they choose from a variety of groups, such as: cooking, photography, dance, sports, computer graphics, 3D modeling & printing, Technology, Music and Arts.  We also have an academic enrichment program that establishes learning baselines and teaches children how to learn.
