Project Connection & Bulls-Eye
Project Window’s mentoring program will pair a youth with mentor for the school year. During that time the child will participate in weekly activities that will improve the young person’s confidence and hopefulness. Mentors will receive continuous training throughout the year and
will participate in monthly meeting to report the young person’s progress. The mentor will make a commitment to meet with the child at lease once a month. The child will be required to bring their report card and any progress report from their teachers.
Children who participate in mentoring programs are 46% less likely to use drugs, 27% less likely to use alcohol, 52% less likely to skip school and 53% less likely to engage in violent behavior. A mentor can also support a child so they d not turn to gangs.
Project Window will host workshops on issues relevant to girls, including self-esteem, peer pressure, sex education, drug and alcohol abuse, dating and healthy relationships. The workshops will increase the girls’ understanding of, and improve their ability to effectively address, issues they may face in their lives. The workshops will be conducted by Project Window directors, mentors and volunteers.
