Who We Are

Volunteer Mentoring Program - MATCH

This program matches youth, ages 6-13 that are experiencing trying times with positive adult role models.  The mentoring program is a prevention program that is designed to work with young people in 8 specific areas such as Character Development, Academics and Career Development.  The volunteers spend a minimum of 8 hours a month with the young person. 

 

Wilson County Community Service/Restitution

This program is the only one that serves the Wilson County Juvenile Court and Teen Court for community service/restitution for youth 7-17.  The youth are referred to this program from Juvenile Court and/or Teen Court to complete court ordered community service/restitution hours.  The youth complete these hours through a wide range of projects such as Gang Graffiti clean-up, projects at Wilson County Schools, other non-profits, food drives and other special projects, i.e. Adopt-a-highway.

Tutoring

Afterschool tutoring provided by volunteers in our computer lab two days a week.  Volunteers assist with completing assignments and then assist with subjects that youth in k-5 may be having difficulty with in school.  We only accept a limited number of youth so that the youth can have one-on-one interaction with our volunteers.

Y.O.U.T.H. FOCUS

This program provides hands-on life skill classes, workshops and/or activites for our youth, families and/or volunteers in subjects such as: Gang Awareness, Science, Health and Safety Awareness, and many other topics.
