Our mission is to prepare young people through holistic programs to be leaders for the purpose of empowering their communities.
ALL ABOUT SHIELD
The SHIELD Mentor Program (SHIELD) specializes in the integration of group mentoring, online mentoring and peer mentoring, which enables youth to receive greater positive influences from more than one individual. SHIELD's services are two-fold in that we train community members who share the mentoring spirit throughout the community to become role models as well as provide mentoring sessions in which the youth can spend time engaged in constructive and meaningful programs built towards their development.
WHAT DOES MENTORING ENTAIL?
Together, youth and adults participate in interactive workshops, community service activities, team building exercises, meetings with community leaders, leadership development, and focus on a specific theme, such as goal setting, decision making, conflict resolution, effective communication and teamwork. A program year includes:
- Monthly Saturday Leadership Workshops
- Service projects
- College visits
- And more
