MFCMentoring for Change
Mentoring for Change (MFC) Inc. is an atypical nonprofit 501(c)(3) mentoring organization that provides responsible and caring programs for students from the fifth grade through college across the country. This organization is atypical in the sense of not providing traditional non-engaging student care and being a money conduit with no substantiated measurables. MFC Inc. on the other hand is a viable entity that challenges students to harness and take control of their destiny, underscores the power of choice and urge the next generation to tap into their inner strength that manifest “real” change. The organization helps students to challenge anti-social behaviors (name calling, bullying and displaced anger) while establishing and enhancing vital life skills like: coping techniques, critical decision-making, conflict resolution and positive communication. Two other components of focus by MFC Inc. are academic under-achievement/grade retention and high absenteeism.
MFC Inc. has established supporting partnerships with local and national school agencies, Mentor (national organization), America Promise Alliance, the faith-based community, various civic groups and the Juvenile Court system by way of Teen Court to help address the prevalent issues with today’s youth. The organization goal is to develop and foster a commitment between an adult or peer supportive mentor and a small group of youth that will promote strong interpersonal skills, appropriate communication and reassert a sense of hope and meaning for the future. Only through a personal relationship can a sense of individual responsibility be established that will give youth the desire to follow through on a path to adulthood with a sense of pride and accomplishment.
MFC Inc. mentoring efforts originated in 2006 and since its inception, more than 300 students have been supported and have shown growth behaviorally, academically and in accountability.
To give back to the community by fostering positive change in the lives of youth through mentorship, irrespective of personal differences, background, ethnicity or diaspora.
