Future Program Implementation

 
We strongly believe with appropriate screening, resourceful innovation and nurturing, those with the potential will materialize to be leaders of revival.

Home of Champions program will be divided into three dynamic phases within 24 months.

Phase I

Pre-Screening & Preparation

Foster care youth ages 16-18 who are motivated to attend vocational and academic institutions will be identified. Linkage agreements with New Paltz & NYC Foster Care agencies will be established.

10-20 youth will be selected to attend weekend workshops in preparation to move into Home of Champions. The focus will be on building self-esteem, confidence and communication skills.

In collaboration with SUNY New Paltz, and existing youth leadership program developed by Columbia University’s Teachers’ College, and other Academic partners, result-oriented workshops will be developed and implemented.
