Mission Statement

The mission of O.K.A.Y. Institute, Inc.is to encourage and empower at-risk socio-economically disadvantaged youth to excel academically, engage in realworld experiences that will enable them to accomplish their personal goals,
and equip them with the tools necessary to envision and act on the vast opportunities that are available to them

Description

YES Mentoring Program is a mentoring program for students in middle school ages 11-15. Youth will be able to enter the program at the end of 5th grade to assist with their transition into middle school. The goal of the program is to foster a commitment to youth that will provide a support system that will allow the youth to be confident, responsible, self-motivated, and academically successful. At-risk students tend to lack the necessary tools to be successful in school or in making positive choices. The mentoring program will focus primarily in helping them develop the traits and habits to foster success. The youth will receive opportunities to participate in real life activities quarterly.
