What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Mentoring, SAT Prep, College Prep, Public Speaking, 4th Grade Prep

• The Mentoring Programs currently serves middle school and high school students and addresses the personal, educational, and social needs of students through individual relationships with adult volunteers. The Middle School program is an on-site program implemented at Alfred E. Smith Elementary School guidance and exposure to new opportunities. Fostering a meaningful mentoring relationship is achieved by spending time with the young person through various activities, such as providing academic assistance, attending cultural events and participating in APEX mentoring workshops. Through this program, students are able to improve academically, develop stronger interpersonal skills and a more positive self-image, as well as cultivate valuable and memorable friendships. 

• The SAT Prep Program seeks to equip students for the standardized college entrance examination by building confidence and awareness in test-taking strategies and subject materials.  The ten-week course, held twice a year, consists of classroom instruction and diagnostic exams. 

• The College Preparation Program consists of a series of modules and tours designed to equip students with appropriate resources and tools.  Workshop topics include college application processes, writing an effective personal statement, financial aid and scholarships, and career development.  College tours, held within and outside New York State, are held for students to learn about campus life, programs of study, and different student organizations.

• The Public Speaking Program provides a general framework for understanding and practicing English speaking and listening skills.  The after-school program is a school-based program in partnership with the NBC Universal Page Program.  The program is provided for student populations that are predominantly recent immigrants and English language learners who are over-aged and under-credited.  Whether speaking to an audience or joining a conversation, this program boosts students’ confidence in engaging others in dialogue. 
 
• The 4th Grade Prep Program prepares students for the statewide standardized English Language Arts (ELA) and Math exams, which determine placement in New York City public schools for students starting in the 6th grade. Conducted in partnership with Alfred E. Smith Elementary School the program’s main objectives are to provide academic support and teach test-taking strategies to do well in the exams.
