ARM is a year long
program where kids and adults are paired into a mentoring program.
The program’s mission is to provide a meaningful life
experience not only for our youth but the mentors as well. The
pair will commit to communication and mentoring in addition
to attendance at five scheduled events (opening and closing
dinner, mid-year event, sports event, and a field trip) and
they are encouraged to maintain open communication not only
with their mentors but also with the case managers throughout
the duration of the program. These activities enable them to
expand their horizons, discover their hopes and dreams, and
lead them to realize their potential.

ASAP is a one day
event where kids interact with others their age to learn team

events with their various teams. Each team is led by adult volunteers
and coordinators. At the end of the day the kids and their teams
are rewarded with special medals for their participation in
ASAP. The program involves volunteers and business donors in
the community to provide the kids with special t-shirts, food,
goodie bags and game equipment. These sporting activities enable
the kids to gain interaction with others while building upon
their teamwork skills.
