The Forever Dc mentorship Program Inc is a Non-Profit organization that is focused on bettering the youth ages 13-21. The program stands on four pillars, Academic Achievement, Pick your Passion, Financial Literacy, and Philanthropy. The organization plans to instill and teach the importance of these four pillars, in order for the youth to be academically confident, motivated better prepared, better qualified and socially conscious. The unique feature about the Forever Dc program is that we will travel into the communities to help the youth instead of them traveling to us. This will filter the issue of the mentees figuring out a way to travel to us. Another key aspect of the mentorship program is that all four pillars will be taught through hands-on engaging activities.
The academic achievement portion of the program is to support mentees in achieving academic success.
The purpose of the Pick your Passion(P.Y.P) portion of the program is to allow the mentees to articulate what they are passionate about. With that information, we will bring in mentors to cultivate the mentees passion. (Example: If the mentee loves to draw and paint, we will bring in an artist to work with the mentee and to cultivate their skills). The end goal of this portion is to show the mentees that they are able to make a career in what they are passionate about.
The purpose of the philanthropy portion of the program is to teach the mentees that there is more to life than receiving. It is also about giving back to the people that are less fortunate.
The purpose of the financial literacy portion of the program is to teach the mentees financial management skills which will develop better financial habits. We will teach the mentees credit, investments, entrepreneurship, loans and the language of budgeting and saving. This allows the mentees to learn about finances at a young age which will carry over into their adult lives.
