We Care Program

We Care Program

Theta Alpha Foundation, Inc. proudly introduces the next iteration of its mentoring programs.  Prededed by the Saturday Scholars and Omega Sparks programs we now offer to the community the WE CARE PROGRAM

Purpose:

To work with young men interested in enhancing the chance for success in their lives by attending a college or university and giving them the tools needed to be able to achieve their goals.

Target group:

Disadvantaged Young men entering the 11th grade of high school.  Applications will need to be submitted between April and May of the 10th grade year.

Program Duration:

Young men will be asked to sign up for 2 school years, 11th grade and 12th grade.

Program Structure:

Monthly, or Bi-weekly, meetings with young men to discuss topics that will help them prepare for college and life in general.  Discussion topics will include practical exercises to reinforce what is being taught.  The meetings will start in August and end in November.  They will reconvene In January and last until April of each school year.  The month of May will be the close out month, during which a special transition event will occur for the young men.

The first year that the young man enters the program they will be required to attend each meeting of discussion topics.  The topics will include, but not limited to, College Application process, Financial Aid application process, Organizational and Time Management Skills, Financial Literacy, Job Interview Skills, and Public Speaking.

The second year of the program will be focused on implementation of courses taught during the first year and assistance in the application process for college or universities and financial assistance.  This is to ensure that deadlines are met for the college or university the child wants to attend.  During the last semester the young man will then be given an opportunity to mentor/volunteer as a peer to the first year young men. As each year passes, each graduating class will then mentor/volunteer to the prior year.

The attendance of the meetings will be required in order to participate in extra-curricular activities.  The activities will include things like paintball, bowling, camping, trips to sporting events, or video game competitions, just to name a few.

Outcome:

At the conclusion of participating in the program, the young men that have attended will have a better respect for themselves, their community, and society as a whole.  They will also have the benefit of completing the college application process and start their college careers on the right track.
