Impactful Youth Mentoring
Timothy Project: Youth Mentoring Youth in Houston, Texas is a youth mentoring program for ages 8-11 and 12-18. It is an excellent program in that it offers youth, ages 14 and up, an opportunity to train as lead mentors and share their talents and skills with other youth (with adult supervision) in Activities That Teach.
The Timothy Project meets on the 2nd, 3rd, and 4th Thursday of each month. Using group discussion, teaching activities and field trips, our students are heavily engaged in developing a godly character, proper etiquette in a social setting, and building self-esteem.
Through this program, students will achieve practical goals to help them move on to the next level with fewer or no problems with drugs, misfit groups, or delinquency. As a youth peer-mentoring program, we will help students achieve practical goals through individual and group mentoring and counseling sessions for ages 8 to 18.
To launch a successful career, many experts are now prescribing mentors. In fact, just about everyone could use some form of mentor/mentee relationship. After working twice a week with their peers in structured class sessions, young people are inspired to excel in school and at home. Group discussions are always a great hit among participants. They enjoy a variety of topics, such as anger management, behavior modification, communication, conflict resolution, peer pressure, problem solving, and a host of other subjects. We do not hold sessions on the first Tuesday and first Thursday of each month.
TP Engage Our Youth In:
- Character Education (“In Search of Character”)
- Character Development
- Character Building
- Activities That Teach
Youth will experience a minimum of two field trips giving them knowledge and exposure to the culture of their city and, etiquette training to help them in social settings.
The Enrichment objectives will have a transforming effect upon their cultural understanding and an enhancing affect upon their self-esteem.
The project is in place in four school districts: Channelview, Galena Park, Humble, and Sheldon I.S.D. Our participants demonstrate growth by exhibiting an increased self-image and greater self-worth. They possess greater motivational skills, and they are empowered through the development of their leadership skills. Because of the densely populated single-parent households in the Houston area, youth mentoring is an especially important method of supporting and guiding our children.
