Fostering Aspirations: Mentor Engagement (FAME) Program

​​​​Fostering Aspirations: Mentor Engagement (FAME) provides mentoring services in one-on-one and group settings. The length of the relationship is designed to be at least one year. The program effectively nurtures the “five C’s” of Positive Youth Development (character, competence, confidence, connections, and contribution) in youth served by empowering mentors, parents, and service agency stakeholders to provide integrated healthy support and guidance. The program delivers PYD based mentoring, coordinated support services management, and evidence-based parental development.

​​​​The Fostering Aspirations: Mentor Engagement (FAME) Program serves youth ages 10 to 17 years old who are identified as being at-risk or high risk for school failure, dropping out of school, and/or becoming involved in juvenile delinquency, including gang affiliation.

​Through the FAME program, TBAH celebrates diversity and strives to instill integrity, compassion and confidence in each student. We give our youth the support and encouragement to become his or her own unique successful self. ​If you have youth ages 10 to 17 in need of additional support, college and/or career exploration, or just plain fun, sign them up for the FAME program by clicking here.

The youth in this program also experience risk factors such as high poverty, having a parent that is incarcerated, homelessness, abuse or neglect, early first use or exposure to drugs/alcohol, having a disability, exposure to trauma, negative peer influences, and low self-esteem/perception of self.
