At Mending Minds our mission to have all stakeholders to help promote a stable foundation for our youth by building and developing strength, wisdom, and tenacity to promote success and encourage healthy participation in our communities
Mending Minds will help our youth strive to develop healthy behaviors, social skills, self-management skills and positive relationship building skills in order to become productive citizens of their communities.
The purpose of the Cultural and Youth Activities Program is to help build communities through community arts and cultural activities. Communities can include geographic locales, as well as communities of interest such as those involved in visual arts, music, or crafts. Participation in the arts and cultural activities not only entertains but teaches us more about who we are. Cultural activity in many forms also provides those involved in the culture sector the opportunity to develop skills and share ideas. It is through this sharing that relationships within and among communities are strengthened and developed, making our communities more vibrant and sustainable.
Field Trips activities are an exciting way to enrich a child’s life outside of the normal classroom environment. They can include trips to museums, parks, zoos, aquariums, or any other local attraction that youth might find engaging and interesting. If there are no suitable locations in your area, many federal sites, such as the Smithsonian and the National Zoo, parks, and live shows and plays, and Trips to State Capitol and White House and Congress
Technology (Computer literacy)
There is a tremendous need for young people to know how to create technology, not just consume it. This is true across every industry, and that’s why Mending Minds science programs help prepare youth for college and career by teaching technical programming skills in languages like Scratch, Python and Java alongside essential life skills like problem solving, teamwork and resiliency.
Political Awareness (Understanding Politics)
Advocating for youth mainstreaming can allow young people to change the world by creating new awareness, opportunities, policies, systems and cultures that foster youth engagement. In political parties, youth mainstreaming could allow for children and youth to affect democratic representation even in parties that would deny them the right to vote or otherwise become engaged
Academic Support (Tutoring)
These types of activities are intended to build on and enhance student learning outside of class time. They can take the form of more traditional instruction, complete with assessments, or more interactive activities intended to actively engage youth. These activities should be well aligned with what students are learning during the school day. These could be summer learning programs, reading or math afterschool enrichment.
