JOSHUA GROUP INC
November 8, 2010
This organization is doing something that is challenging and unique. They accept children who have been expelled, suspended, truant or otherwise dropouts from the school system and provide them with supplemental education and strong behavioral management. It is a volunteer agency that works with the children one-on-one to also provide mentoring and referral services for their families. It's almost like sending your children to their grandparents home to straighten out issues that the parents are having difficultiy dealing with. It's an awesome program that also gives the children structure, stability and hope. They say it's their goal to transition the child back into school academically enlightened and with positive behaviors and attitudes.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
We have just started but we have managed to transition 2 children back into school in a fairly short period of time.
Ways to make it better...
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
Donate monies for them to have paid staff and more technical equipment and supplies for these children.
Volunteer & I spend 4 hours daily with the children on the computer. We teach all five core academics and spend 2 hours working on issues the children have for not attending school. We work on small goals for them to accomplish to get to the larger goal of graduati.
