SCHOOL EMPOWERMENT PROGRAM
We offer a weekly after school psychoeducational program for 4th and 5th grade students at Eagle, Bay, Medford, and Tremont Elementary schools. The goal of the program is to improve student academic performance and behavior in and out of school, as well enhancing the relationships between children, their families and the community. Early intervention can prevent the onset of delinquent behavior and supports the development of a youth’s assets and resilience. The program provides counsel on obtaining skills in the areas of health and nutrition, positive relationships, building self-esteem, goal setting, decision-making, and community awareness through educational workshops and group activities, as well as community service activities. Guest speakers visit to speak to the students about various topics. In addition, the program aids children through the transition to middle school.
Leadership Skill Training is provided to 6th, 7th, & 8th grade students at Oregon Middle School and runs October - May.
The goal of the Youth Council is to improve academic success by introducing topics of time-management and goal setting to students and by fostering empathy and community through service projects. The curriculum focuses on cultural diversify, self-esteem, stress relief and healthy relationships and includes role-playing and anti-bullying skill development.
Students participate in at least one community service, business or local agency experience project per month. Past projects have included: Adopt a Grandparent, Holiday Cards for Cops, Candy for the Homeless and Holiday Food Drive. Students have access to 3 local speakers presenting on topics in the respective fields and are offered at least 1 local business/agency experience per academic year.
