The mission of the Trinity Family CDC Youth Leadership Program is to bridge gaps in the community that currently negatively impact children and youth. The Youth Enrichment Program develops relationships with children and youth to mentor them and help them to stay the course for life success. Children are admitted to the Program as young as 11 years of age and are encouraged to remain in the Program in some capacity until graduation from high school.
Trinity Family CDC’s Youth Leadership Program works to enrich the lives of children, youth, and young adults through education, training and mentoring in an effort to improve quality of life in the present and help to ensure long-term academic and life success.
The Deep Rootz After school program, provides tutoring for Deep Rootz members after school. The students are picked up from the community school and brought to the center for tutoring, homework assistance, and mentoring to prepare these students for academic and life success. We currently provided these services monday thru wednesday, and we hope to be able to add an additional day in the near future.
The Summer Program is a five week Program that runs three days weekly through the summer months. The Program is designed to serve no more than 30 children at this time. Children are pre-screened to ensure those admitted to the program can benefit from the summer enrichment time. Transportation is provided to ensure that the Program is accessible for each child who is admitted. Breakfast and lunch are provided each day as well to ensure that children receive nutritious meals while their parents work.
Activities provided through the Summer Program include:
