Funding Needs

Currently, our 5 greatest needs are:1. Funding for the Texas Mentoring Initiative - to fund the entire program for Harris County and the other 5 counties in the state of Texas. We currently have raised $450,000 of the $906,000 budget2. Mentors for the Texas Mentoring Initiative - 250 mentors needed to mentor underserved youth in all 6 counties, including 75 in Harris County3. Instructors to facilitate curriculum deployment in Harris County and the other 5 counties. We are looking for 1 facilitator in Harris County, and 4 others in Dallas, Amarillo, Waco and Fort Worth. Positions are paid positions part-time and are ideal for teachers or corporate trainers who would like to serve this population.4. Businesses willing to commit to training these youth in job skills and corporate values while they are still in facility, then hire them upon release, as part of our workforce development program5. Volunteers to impact these youth in a variety of ways: medical and dental care, job training, employment opportunities, financial literacy training and more.
