This unique program will encourage underserved young people to find their voices through self and community power. We empower our young people to use creativity, education, and leadership to nurture a growth mindset and encourage self-efficacy.
We recognize the need to look inside our own organization to ensure that we intentionally promote racial equity, along with all forms of racism, discrimination, and oppression.
We know that we have been complicit in upholding the status quo. We cannot continue to pursue our work in a race-neutral way. Therefore, we are interrupting our past behavior and taking intentional and significant steps to transform TeachThemYoungER to live our values. As we work toward creating a more equitable country where our communities can thrive regardless of their race, ethnicity, socioeconomic background, sexual orientation, or ability. TeachThemYoungER must live the values for which we advocate.
We are motivated to bring awareness to legal and moral methods of creating a movement of “NEXT LEVEL” change to our communities:
Our team will assist dreams by offering academic strategies and supports; advocating for students in all educational settings. This includes tutoring, IEP reviews, case conferences and meetings. We are offering virtual school support as well for tutoring, providing supervision with DBA's and conferences.
Our Youth Leadership programs formed to serve the unique need of focusing youth energies on positive activities, leading to increased self-efficacy and the development of skills relevant to success in their NEXT LEVEL
One-on-one instruction, or mentoring, is one of the oldest forms of teaching. Our parents and grandparents are our earliest mentors; later, we may be mentored by--or act as mentors to--brothers, sisters, and friends. We understand the importance of these relationships. Our mentor programs work because they provide encouragement and guidance to everyone that participates.
Opportunities to participate in trips to colleges within the State of Florida as well as other areas of the country. A group of students along with staff members travel to tour college campuses, meet with admission representatives and students to learn about majors, special programs, deadline dates, student clubs, and overall college life.
The traditional college route doesn't fit everyone's dream so let us help you on another path. Young People 16 to 24 years old can access help to get a summer job, get work-ready training, try an apprenticeship, build a career path.
Successful positive youth development initiatives go beyond our TeachThemYoungER programs: they involve many different community sectors in creating the services, opportunities, and supports young people need. We will leverage resources to provide opportunities.
Family engagement means that families and their children’s schools, and learning programs are all involved in the child’s learning and development. There is a partnership between TTY and the family, and a connection to the community. We will provide information and access to resources if needed.
Workshops, events, and awareness groups where our community young people and community leaders facilitate projects on the aspects of race, bias, and inequity.
Carl's Van Rentals is family-owned and operated and has been providing the State of Florida with large capacity vans since 1994. Starting as a used car lot just south of downtown Orlando, Florida Carl’s Van Rentals had only a few vans but slowly built a local reputation for having the best prices and service in Orlando! Carl (yes there is really a Carl) came up with the idea of opening a van-specific rental company when his son’s Little League baseball team qualified to play in a State Championship game. The game wasn’t in Orlando and the entire team needed to go on the trip. After looking all over the Orlando metro area, Carl was unable to find any vehicles that could accommodate over seven people. Since Carl was operating a used car dealership, he began to stock vans on his lot and in June 1993 started offering the vans for rent. Though there were only three Ford Aerostar vans, it was the start of what is now Carl’s Van Rentals. Since then, we have expanded throughout Florida serving most large metropolitan areas and a majority of Florida’s largest international airports. With locations in Tampa, Orlando, Jacksonville, and Fort Lauderdale, they make renting convenient for all. Call (800) 565-5211, get your instant quote now or make a reservation online.
Thank you Carl's Van Rentals for helping our kids get to their NEXT LEVEL.
In service to our commitment to equity, TeachThemYoungER recognizes that learning about racism and equity is an ongoing process. We want to create a discussion/roundtable that begins to have these discussions at a young person’s level. Alvin "AC" Codner will lead this effort and bring his style and flair to topics that stimulate discussions within our village that can help unite our communities.
