42. First Lady's Futures For Kids Program Expands Youth Mentoring
July 1, 2000 FIRST LADY'S FUTURES FOR KIDS PROGRAM EXPANDS YOUTH MENTORING "The goals of reducing substance abuse, teen pregnancy, delinquency and gang involvement are equally important to pursue during the summer months when youth have substantial amounts of free time on their hands," Mrs. Ryan said. "These additional funds will allow the peer mentoring component of the Teen REACH after-school program to expand their hours of operation during the summer months." Teen REACH is a component of the First Lady's Futures for Kids program and is administered by the Department of Human Services throughout the State to provide after-school programs for high-risk youth between the six years and 17 years old. In addition to mentoring, Teen REACH provides academic assistance, recreation and cultural activities, life-skill education, and events that strengthen the parent and child bonds and community involvement with young people. "Illinois is unique in its efforts to implement such a comprehensive out-of-school program, explained Baker. " We have had an overwhelming interest in this program from a diverse group of organizations across the State, including many non-traditional human services grantees."

Local chapter of the nation's oldest and largest youth mentoring organization.
Home Volunteer Contribute Corporate Partnership ... Contact Us WELCOME!
Big Brothers Big Sisters has been the nation's preeminent youth-service organization for nearly a century. Locally, we have provided high quality mentoring services since 1963! We have a proven success in creating and nurturing relationships between adults and children.
Our service is based on our volunteers. Big Brothers and Big Sisters are, foremost, friends to children: They share everyday activities, expand horizons, and experience the joy in even the simplest events. Within those little moments lies the big magic that a Big Brother or Big Sister brings to the life of a young person. Professionals in youth development support these individual, responsible relationships. And national research has shown that the shared experiences between Bigs and Littles have a direct and lasting impact on children's lives. A Big can help a child discover a world of possibilities and opportunities simply by being a genuine friend.
Nobody else is doing the work that Big Brothers Big Sisters does in exactly the way we do it. That is why America and Arizona counts on Big Brothers Big Sisters for Little Moments. Big Magic!

47. Michigan Youth Mentoring: Youth Development
youth mentoring for Lansing, Michigan area youths from 10 to 15 yearsold. Youth Development Corporation's programs are in collaboration
Spartan Friends Mentoring Program
Our Spartan Friend's Youth Mentoring Program was started in 1993 through a collaborative agreement between the Youth
Development Corporation, Michigan State University's Office of Service Learning and the Lansing School District.

The Program matches adults and college student mentors with at-risk Middle School children who are between the ages of 10-15; the mentor spends 2-4 hours per week with the child. Half of this time, or two hours per week is spent tutoring the child in those academic areas where he/she is having the most trouble; the other 50% of the time is spent involved in recreational activities to create an appropriate balance between work and play. The Program Coordinator is in weekly contact with each mentor to facilitate positive development of the relationship and to assist mentors in solving problems. The Coordinator is also in regular contact with the school staff, and parents as well as children on an as needed basis. The efficiency of our program is determined by analyzing the grades of those kids to mentors have been assigned. Report Cards from each marking period are compared to the students' academic performances prior to enrollment in the program. Last year, 81.1% of the children experienced a mean increase of 1 grade point; in other words, those scoring a D average at the start finished with a C average; those who began with a C average improved to a C average, etc.
We conducted our 6th annual Summer Mentoring Program in 2002; usually, our mentoring effort is centered around helping the student with class work and homework assignments to insure that all assignments are properly understood and turned in on time. It was felt that having a Summer program would provide a bridge between Spring and Fall learning.. Thus far, we feel that this has been an effective policy. Those children who had a Summer mentor scored better on their first Fall marking period than those who did not have the benefit of a commensurate summer opportunity.

YWCA Youth Mentoring Services changes life for the better for this young client. A special friendship with an adult mentor has given 16 year old Ashlee Newham, a young participant in the YWCA's Big Sister/Big Brother Program, a new found motivation to enrol in the Year 10 Certificate of General Vocational Education at TAFE. Ashlee's strong commitment to the program has also culminated in an invitation to join the Parramatta Advisory council of the Program to which she brings enthusiasm, creativity and a new young energy. Ashlee was matched over a year ago with Big Sister, Joanna Karavasilis, and has identified her relationship with Joanna as being influential in the marked changes in herself and her life over this time. "My friendship with Joanna has helped me make decisions that have changed my life for the better," Ashlee says. "The impact of this match has been amazing," according to Jessica Connelly, the YWCA's Youth Mentoring Services Manager. "Ashlee is the eldest child at home in a sole parent family and is very protective of her family. She was referred to the Program when she was going through a difficult phase in her life and since being matched hasn't looked back."

Children dream big. Even these "at risk" kids envision bright futures:
Many "at risk" kids have enormous potential but lack the self-esteem and guidance to attempt academic challenges and make positive choices.
Some of them lack the hope even to dream. But with the help of a friend, a confidante, a special person who cares - a mentor like you - they have a lifeline and a positive role model.
Tamara, Jeff and Orlando are working with mentors - people like you - who encourage them by example and help them stay in school, giving them a chance at achieving their dreams.
All this can happen with just one hour a week of your time.
Children of today are the leaders of tomorrow.
They are our future.

As a mentor, you might help a student learn vocabulary words, negotiate a schedule for completing make-up work, or simply listen to him talk. You'd be surprised how a child's whole future can hinge on a small triumph like getting an "A" on a math paper or finding resources to help with everyday problems or goal-setting for the future.
Whatever you do, by simply being yourself and being with a student, you are a reminder that she or he has value and the potential to succeed. When students realize that someone cares about them, school absenteeism decreases, academic performance increases and students gain the self-assurance to avoid destructive social pressures.

Grant Results Brief
Camden Youth Mentoring and Enrichment Program
(last updated September 2002) The Woodland Community Development Corporation developed a project that provides inner-city children in Camden, NJ, ages 5-14, with tutoring and enrichment activities in an effort to delay their experimentation with alcohol, tobacco and illicit drugs. Two grants from The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (RWJF) supported the project in 1999 and 2000. Camden suffers from crime, high unemployment, and other negative social and economic factors that have had a devastating effect on the city's 20,000 school children. Research suggests that delaying a child's first use of alcohol, tobacco, and illicit drugs can reduce the risk of later abuse. Woodland is a Camden-based nonprofit social service agency established by the Rev. Floyd L. White III, pastor of the Woodland Avenue Presbyterian Church in Camden. The project's objectives were to: (1) provide systematic education and substance-abuse prevention information to 120 Camden students in grades K through 8; (2) foster a program that paid particular attention to African-American and Hispanic youth; (3) create a program to pair children with adult mentors; and (4) educate approximately 115 parents of children participating in the project in drug and alcohol abuse prevention and early intervention activities. Project results reported by Woodland included:
  • Establishment of an after-school program to give students academic assistance, cultural enrichment, and substance-abuse information. Named the Mary Esther Williams Homework Centers Program, in honor of a deceased local educator, the program operated homework centers in five schools under the first grant and in seven under the second grant. The centers were open Monday through Thursday for one hour at the conclusion of the regular school day. Seventy-five students completed the program in the first year, 96 in the second year. In addition to providing students with academic help, enrichment activities, and substance abuse prevention training, the centers promoted WCDC-sponsored community events not funded under these grants, including a panel discussion on HIV prevention and a community health fair.

PEERLESS AVENUE COMMUNITY CENTER HOME WHAT'S NEW SERVICES FOR ADULT EX-OFFENDERS SERVICES FOR AT-RISK YOUTH ... FINANCIAL INFORMATION CORM PARTNERS WITH AREA AGENCIES TO BRING ACTIVITIES AND MENTORING TO AT-RISK YOUTH IN UPPER MARLBORO, MD On November 11th, 2000, an Open House was held to introduce the public to the Peerless Avenue Community Center, a new project in which CORM is involved. Serving as the hub of our efforts to link youth with mentors, the Community Center provides after-school and weekend activities for school-age youth in the Peerless Avenue area of Upper Marlboro, Maryland, a suburb of Washington, DC. Operating out of a 4 bedroom single-family home provided by the Prince George's County Housing and Community Development, the center operates through partnerships with the Prince George's County Police Department COPS (Community Oriented Policing Service), area churches and other agencies to build positive relationships with the area's youth and match them with one-on-one mentors. About Peerless Avenue
Peerless Avenue is a dead-end street of modest single family homes situated off a major highway artery through Southern Maryland. It is an area known for drug dealing, and there appears to be little recreational activities for youth in the immediate area. Most of the homes in the community are know as "Section 8" homes, named for the HUD program that provides rent subsidies on behalf of tenants to housing owners and landlords. Areas like this, "are prime locations for youth ministry", notes CORM director Louis Jones. For instance, he recently drove through the area and observed at least six youth standing around in the cul-de-sac, "looking bored and doing nothing." Rev. Ricky Lyons and volunteer Juanita Parks of
