About the Project

A 6 months transformational program offered to youths ages 16-24 to help them develop a productive lifestyle. The program includes educational workshops, support groups, and 1-on-1 mentoring to help them prepare for the future.

There are 2 aspects of the program. First, youths will have the opportunity to put together a profile of their strengths and talents to promote and showcase themselves on how they can use and leverage their strengths and talents as social change agents. They will create their own video, blog, Slideshare, and other promotion formats to display their strengths and talents. Their ideas will be showcased on our website under our “Youth Spotlight” page for others to view and vote on.  The winning youth will be given a scholarship award at the end of the program. The winning youth will also have the opportunity to come back next year to share his or her experience to support the next group of youth social change agents.

The second purpose of the program is to help youths develop a balanced and strong life foundation to help protect their goals and dreams, and at the same time experience more joy, meaning, purpose, happiness, and fulfillment in life. 

At the end of the program, each youth will be presented with a Completion of Program Certificate for transforming themselves to become the next social agent.

Each month, in the first week, youths will attend a two-hour educational workshop. From the 2nd through the 4th weeks, youths will attend a 2-hour support group meeting to learn and interact with their peers and instructor, and also opportunities to work on their profile. Also, in the 4th week, youths will meet with their mentor to clear up their doubts in order to take the next step in life.
