Junior Leadership Academy
Holistic urban prevention work. A four year program building a Path of Promise to bridge
the transition between childhood and adulthood.
The UPM Solution
After School/Summer Camp
60 children are divided into four groups and rotate through stations: Homework, social emotional learning, fitness and reading. Upon completing this program they transition into the Junior Street Leader Program. This program is now run by our partner Hope For Miami.
Junior Street Leaders
Ages 11- 14
The Junior Street Leader Program’s mission is to help heal and empower youth ages 11 to 14 to bridging the ultra high risks of Middle School. Curriculum includes life skills, CHAT/Therapy, homework, fitness, cooking, community service, outings, fun, leadership development, spiritual development and mentorship.
Street Leaders Program
The Street Leader Program employs high school students as counselors, tutors, and mentors for the children who attend our after school programs and summer camps. As a StreetLeader teens receive extensive job training, tutoring and the opportunity to make positives changes in their community.
CHAT (Connecting, Healing, and Achieving Together)
Collaborating with Wellspring Counseling, we are one of the only community-based after-school programs that offers free counseling and evaluative services on-site which is critical to overcoming trauma and negative influences for inner city children.
Healthy Eating and Physical Activity
We strive to teach our kids healthy eating, focus on wellness, physical activity, and nutrition.
Once a month, we encourage all of our teens to participate in an outing to help strengthen bonds and communication. These outings include such things as a movie night, a game night, youth group, a sports event, a dinner held at our site, etc.
To deliver our holistic model we have formed strategic partnerships with best in class providers to enable our site to be a hub for helping at risk youth beat the odds.
