Nonprofit Overview

Causes: Child Day Care, Children & Youth

Mission: Stephens Educational Program strive to increase the awareness of healthy eating through filtering in local school districts to create a back-pack program for youth throughout the community. In addition to the back-pack program, our educational establish will introduce youth to our retired teachers association that will help with tutoring to exceed in the educational endeavors of leadership excellence.

Target demographics: our healthy eating program, youth will gain a respect for the foods they eat. They will learn the nutritional value through our educational component. We will have extra curriculum activities to allow our youth to earn points in our food awareness activities. We want children to be aware of our program though media, word of mouth and a show and tell outreach. Our key factor is to influence our children to eat healthier and show them that people are concerned about their well- being. Our Work- On- Me project will give children fun ways to exercise.

Programs: We value our youth of today to make a better tomorrow. We must educate through healthy eating exercise, and invent ways to make our program interesting. One of the ways we plan to implement our food program is by teaching children how to turn lemons into lemonade. This can apply in our homes, our schools, our churches and yes, our community. Most children do not have the concept of how they can take a cucumber and make pickles. Most of our children are not aware that they can take the hull from a peach and make jelly. We would like for part of our healthy eating program to have a pilot program that will teach youth how to grow and maintain a garden and how to can vegetables or just grow a tomato to pull and eat from the vine. We want to educate them on the process by hands on experience of each child, during our after school program.
