FACT: 85% of All Youths in Prison Come From Fatherless Homes
At HOPE Farm, we desire to teach our boys in developmentally appropriate paradigms.
The Next Level, our academic teaching time for our 5th -12th grade, focuses on teaching our boys how to be independent, lifelong learners. We engage in time management skills, tutoring, enrichment, remediation as well as basic study, reading and math skills.
This highly charged academic block aims at individualizing instruction to meet the needs of boys, like Audrey, as they transition from childhood to manhood. Our weekly volunteers enable us to tailor our instruction to their areas of strengths and weaknesses, making this a highly effective time.
It is during their time in the Next Level that we begin the process of college and career counseling. We engage in academic advising for our high schoolers, college and college fair trips, and assistance with college and scholarship applications. We help to prepare our boys to move into the next phase of their lives through mentoring and monitoring their progress and create programming to fit their individual needs.
During this holiday season please consider supporting our leadership program. Your gift helps keep boys in school and makes possible true community change with an impact that will last generations.
