Since 2016 Restore, Uplift, and Hope San Diego has partnered with The Dr. John Arrington Mentorship (JAM) Program, sponsored by the Phi Omicron Chapter, An unincorporated entity of The Omega Psi Phi Fraternity Incorporated in San Diego.
The program was started in 2007 to address concerns the community had with the San Diego youth. The chapter set out to develop a program that would help address those concerns. The program is named after Dr. John Arrington a member of the Phi Omicron Chapter. who has been a leader in the community in the areas of education and religion.
The Dr. JAM Program has two major components that are used in conjunction with each other. The first is the monthly educational component. Each month the group gets together and has a session that deals with one of the core principles of the group.
- Character Development
- Academic Success
- Cultural Awareness
- Social Service
The second component is the group activity component. These events are used to build the brotherhood between mentees and to give them a chance to fellowship with members of Omega Psi Phi Fraternity, Inc.
Our goal for this year is to raise $10,000.00 for the program to help finance the programs and Dr. JAM Scholarships and Grants for the graduating seniors.
