Life Skool Leadership Mentoring Program is a unique approach from any other mentoring structure in today’s communities or public school systems. With the service of experienced and educated mentors, the Life Skool leadership mentoring prevention program is a year-long step-by-step, hands-on leadership development learning course that empowers students to focus on tools necessary to discover who they are along with life purpose while building supportive relationships and engaging in community service projects.
The primary goal is to prevent the school-to-prison pipeline and promote resiliency by equipping teenagers with the skills, knowledge, and confidence to become effective leaders in various aspects of their lives. This program is designed to foster a personal growth mindset, cultivate leadership abilities, and encourage teen civic engagement to thrive in today’s complex world. Our mentoring program will develop, inspire, and empower the next generation of leaders to make a positive difference in their communities and beyond. This is achieved by targeting the highest-needs students in the school discipline system, those already identified to have aggressive and disruptive behaviors. We will target but are not limited to working with tier 2 and tier 3 students. Tier 2 students need intensive social skills training and support, Increased academic support, and alternatives to out-of-school suspensions. In comparison, tier 3 students need intensive academic help, school-based adult mentors, intensive social skills training, individual behavior support plans, parent engagement, alternatives to out-of-school suspension, and community supervision.
Students will work with a youth advocate for a year, focusing on pro-social groups and individual counseling sessions. Life Skool Mentoring Program aims to increase academic performance, reduce behavioral referrals, and introduce students to community service projects and cultural enrichment field trips while creating career pathway opportunities and building lifelong relationships with trusted community members.
In conclusion, the Life Skool mentoring program will use a simple five-step structural process to implement program goals and objectives.
