Education
The Key to the Future
Education of our children is our #1 Priority.

Education transcends every aspect of our program from home work assistance, mentoring, tutoring, life skills, travel exploration, to our country store.  Every student is positoned to gain valuable academic knowledge and skills to help them become productive and contributing members of society capable of proper decision making and behavior. We also work to sharpen their communication, social and life mangement skills.

Our program works to assess the strengths and weaknesses of each learner and establishes a people driven support system to help them achieve goals and to overcome deficiencies. Unlike other programs, students remain in our program long enough to achieve their educational goals which is evidenced by our large number of high school graduates and beyond.

All children are evaluated and tutored using the Odyssey Ware Diagnostic Software Program.

Mentoring
Mentors Rock!

Our mentors contribute to the success of our program by giving kids a positive “friend” and role model they can trust!

 Mentoring is offered to each student who has an absent or dis-engaged parent. Mentors work one-on-one with the student to help them broaden their view of the world and to challenge them to be the “best” they can be. They become the cheerleaders of the children they serve while Solid Foundation provides a supportive and positive learning environment for each student to learn and thrive.

Tutoring 
You don’t have to be a Rocket Scientist to be a tutor. All you need is a heart for children and a good basic education.  

Some of our best tutors are just ordinary people with average reading, writing and arithmetic skills. Our tutors work one-on-one with our students to ensure they master every subject and homework assignment. Tutors commit to one hour per night two nights a week. We actively recruit teacher’s, professors, and community business leaders to join us in giving back and helping to re-shape the future of one child. At the end of the day, we all get the opportunity to “toot” our horn at the grades that go off the charts... These are the future parents, mothers, fathers, teachers,  doctors, lawyers, politicians, principals of America!
 


Life Skills 

Solid Foundation partners with community based organizations,  business owners, and professionals to incorporate life skills programming into our curriculum. From teen pregnancy and prevention, drug awareness, gang violence prevention and avoidance of other high risk behaviors. Financial fitness including managing a savings account, budgeting, identity theft are just a few issues covered in this phase of our programming. Job readiness and emerging careers are also taught during our summers.  Our objective is to develop confident and knowledgeable students with strong core beliefs and coping skills who can function in their family, school and beyond.

Cultural Enrichment 
Summers are Sizzling at Solid Foundation!

Learn more about cultural Enrichment Programs………

During our summers we offer a multi-disciplinary incentive program including shadowing, camp experiences, travel exploration and arts program to the youth who participate in the program year long.

    Shadowing: Students are matched to a community leader/professional  to spend a day in their shoes.  From a television station to doctors offices --  this has been one of our most celebrated tracts.  Students receive a real world experience in a field of special interest to them.

    Travel: Each summer, select students are chosen to experience the history, beauty and culture of a unique destination. Destinations vary from year to year, to date we have toured  Washington, D.C., New York, Atlanta,  San Antonio, Galveston and Austin, TX.  These trips are made possible through donations, fundraisers and sponsorships.

    Camp: Students are selected based on their grades and conduct  to participate in a week long camping experience. These may include Kids Across America, The Gloria Russell Camps, and others.  Students return charged up and ready to re-enter school with new goals and commitment to achievement and self improvement.

    Arts: This new incentive program will allow students to become involved in a full scale stage production emphazing team building, language skills, competition, poise and self expression. Students design sets and costumes themselves.
