A Youth Developmental
The Many Ways we Connect
PROGRAMMING: P.O.L.i.S.H. for girls has a multi-type curriculum to engage the girls in our yearly ran program. We designed the program to utilize two types of curriculum; an explicit(stated curriculum) and a hidden(unofficial curriculum). We understand that some lessons just cant be taught in a lecture or classroom session, we have combined a curriculum of well thought out activities and group discussions with outings that give real life experience that will be delivered through pre-planned outings/trips as well as through role play within group sessions. We will use a Teach-Apply-Assess measurable scaling system to educate, implement and analyze outcome. This style will be applied in our yearly ran membership program. This program runs yearly from February to December.
MENTORING IN THE COMMUNITY: Aside from our membership program; P.O.L.i.S.H. has decided this year to add mentoring and community engagement into our plan of action for youth development in our communities. With influence from other community activists and the motivation for change, even from our own Forsyth County Sheriff Bobby Kimbrough Jr., we were inspired to join the initiatives and cultivated a slimmed down version of our program to be utilized in a more flexible and creative way. Our intentions with this initiative is to offer groups the opportunity to experience most of what we offer to our members while meeting these girls right where they are. This would include mentoring in small selected groups in schools, afterschool programs, church camps or in housing developments to assist these young girls in there journeys; supplying them with a toolbox of knowledge, skills and experiences to travel with them into adulthood.
