Mentoring – which matches youth or “mentees” with responsible, caring mentors, usually adults. Mentoring provides youth with mentors who can develop an emotional bond with the mentee, have greater experience than the mentee, and can provide support, guidance, and opportunities to help youth succeed in life and meet their goals. Mentoring relationships can be formal or informal with substantial variation, but the essential components include creating, caring, empathetic, consistent, and long-lasting relationships, often with some combination of role modeling, teaching, and advising.
Many of the clients we serve will soon be first time homebuyers when they complete our programs and are able to afford a home. Initiatives, Inc. purchases, renovates, and sells various houses to those very same clients when they are ready. We are always looking for homes to purchase and we are always looking to partner with contractors who are skilled and are licensed.
We provide school support staff for various school programs. The Program Aide staff support the teachers who serve a varied population of students with disabilities. The staff member assists with the implementation of the program as outlined in the IEP of each student, as well as paraprofessionals and school support staff. Staff members assist with adapting instruction that meets the individual academic, medical, developmental, and technological needs of the students.
