The emphasis is slightly different at each level but the overall goal is the same; invest and empower our youth to make productive and effective changes which will ultimately put them on the path to success.

 

   TFD focuses on different goals depending on the program. These goals include:

  • Maintain or increase school performance in behavior, attendance and academics verified by data from the mentee’s school.
  • Promote social and emotional, cognitive-behavioral development and life skills.
  • Decrease or eliminate interaction with the court system.
  • Introduce the concept of community outreach and complete quarterly "pay it forward" initiative. 
  • Educate parents on positive parenting and the importance of parent involvement.
