ERUA Trip for middle mentees and mentors


Created by Felicia Benzo on September 10, 2013

C.A.T.A.L.Y.S.T. ( Children and Adults Together Achieving Leadership Inspiration Success and Trust) Mentoring is in it fourth year of operation with no staff or funding. We have successfully mentored 300 at risk 3- 12 grade students in the Volusia County School system over 3years. This is an effort by the adult community of professionals, business owners, managers and supervisors to inspire children to be all that they can be despite the challenges at home. 85% of the schools are Title one and 76% of the children in our schools are coming from single female head of households. The goal is to mentor 500 children this year with the final goal of mentoring 6,400 (10%) of children in the school system a year. We are changing the paradigm around children to create programs for children that make it clear that they are important and we want them to have the tools for success. The mentoring takes place in the school during school hours. A pen pal initiative with Kenyan students has begun. Internet international classroom exchanges are to start in January with children in other countries. A boys group, DREAM (Dynamic Responsible Educated Achieving Males) initiative starts next week. Money will be used to sustain and expand the program, for marketing/mentoring materials/ supplies/kits, the middle school and high school trips to colleges. Also for costumes, t-shirts, pants, shoes and blazers for performances and the community services projects and stipends for internships. WE must not fail children because of lack of money. There is an abundance of money and we get to fund children activities so that they can succeed. ' It is easier to build a strong child than to repair a broken adult' Fredrick Douglas. We are doing the work. We need financial support to continue and expand! email phone # 386 216 4289
