Our youth program consists of tutoring, after school activities such as, language arts, cultural arts & crafts, personal consultation for students and parents, career preparation and training with the emphasis on living a drug-free and violence free life. We will also provide recreational activities and outings.
Our senior program consists of nutritional training, recreational programs, arts & crafts, daily exercise, monthly outings, networking with other senior programs. We'll be working on essential medical needs such as blood pressure checks, weight checks, sugar lefel checks, dietary evaluations, information classes on SSI, Social Security, Medi-Cal, housing and other needs.
The goals and anticipated results of this youth project are to redirect their energy which can lead to crime and violence, into a positive and productive life. We expect to see them excel in their education by carrying a high grade point average, receiving scholarships, graduating (with honors as earned) and striving for a higher education.
The goals and anticipated results of this senior project are to empower them to live more productive lives through their arts and crafts so they can leave a part of their heritage for the next generation, to have them live longer and healthier lives by providing them with many life tools they need.
