Welcome to our free youth mentoring program, THE MISSION I'M-POSSIBLE LEADERSHIP ACADEMY.
This is a dynamic and mobile service that operates within the heart of Los Angeles County throughout the entire year. Our program takes mentorship to the places where it's needed most, working inside various schools, YMCA facilities, and community centers. We bring guidance and support directly to the youth, creating accessible opportunities for mentorship that align with their everyday environments.
As a mobile service, we transcend physical boundaries, providing mentorship within the familiar and convenient spaces where young individuals already spend their time. Whether it's within the walls of schools, the energy of YMCA environments, or the heart of community centers, our dedicated mentors are there, offering invaluable support to empower and uplift the youth of Los Angeles County.
This commitment to mobility means that our program is not bound by traditional constraints, or confined to a single location but spans across diverse communities. We adapt to the needs of the community, ensuring that mentorship is accessible, approachable, impactful, consistent. and available year-round.
Join us on this journey of positive impact as we bring mentorship directly to the hearts of communities throughout Los Angeles County, fostering growth, resilience, and success in every young individual we encounter.
Key Program Components:
Our comprehensive curriculum covers a wide spectrum of crucial financial topics,
including acquiring and maintaining stellar credit (A1 credit), mastering money
management, delving into the intricacies of investing, and skillfully balancing portfolios.
Our mentees will gain a deep understanding of economic concepts and the importance
of sound financial decisions that impact their futures.
One of the highlights of our program is the hands-on experience our mentees will gain
through various financial activities. These activities will not only solidify their theoretical
knowledge but also demonstrate the practical implications of their financial decisions. As
part of their journey, mentees will undertake a MANDATORY ECONOMIC PROJECT,
applying what they have learned to real-world scenarios and showcasing their
understanding of economics in action. Join us as we embark on a transformative
journey towards financial literacy, empowerment, and economic prowess. Together, we'll
equip the next generation with the tools they need to make informed financial choices,
secure their futures, and thrive in a dynamic economic landscape.
*Our Youth Council goals are twofold:
Our Youth Council leadership team is a dynamic and inclusive platform where young visionaries come together weekly to drive positive change through policy advocacy. Comprising enthusiastic and forward-thinking individuals, our youth council aims to channel the energy and ideas of youth towards shaping impactful social policies that uplift our community.
Firstly, to provide a platform for youth to actively contribute their fresh perspectives, innovative ideas, and community-focused proposals aimed at advancing social policies for the betterment of our community. While also, providing them with the tools and knowledge to engage in policy discussions, debates and to collaborate on initiatives that address pressing societal challenges.
Secondly, to cultivate leadership, collaboration, and civic engagement among our mentees. Through open dialogue, strategic planning, and interaction with local stakeholders, our youth council mentees actively contribute to shaping policies that create a more just and equitable society.
Through thoughtful discussions, strategic planning, and engagement with local stakeholders, the Youth Council endeavors to drive meaningful change by shaping policies that address pressing societal issues. As council mentees participate actively, they not only wield influence over policy discourse but also nurture crucial skills in research, debating, advocacy, and diplomacy, forging a path towards becoming impactful advocates and leaders who champion equitable and sustainable community development.
Our Youth Council mentees will not only be part of a transformative movement, but will leverage their expertise and also gain valuable skills in research, advocacy, and leadership that will propel them towards a future of making a tangible difference.
*Available Leadership Positions* (Elected officers must maintain a 2.5 GPA)
Through hands-on participation, mentees will gain reasons to feel positive about themselves. The Mission I'M-Possible Leadership Academy will not only empower students to reach for the stars, never give up and realize they are Possible, but help illuminate a self-discovery of purpose filled talents, passion and vision for a successful future.
