The Focus of Our Efforts
The mission of the Brigadier General Charles Young Mentoring Program is to provide Metro Atlanta/Gwinnett County students the opportunity to create genuine and authentic relationships with positive men in the community that will prepare them to be confident, productive, and successful adults.
Overview Of the Brigadier General Charles Young Mentoring Program
The Brigadier General Charles Young Mentoring Program is a community-based mentoring program that offers young men (or middle and high school males) ages 12 to 18 the opportunity to participate in life skills instruction. The Brigadier General Charles Young Mentoring Program creates activities that help students develop good character and leadership skills. Youth involved in the program will learn organizational, time management, and critical thinking skills needed for academic success. The Mentor Program curriculum focuses on communication, self-esteem, conflict resolution, perseverance, mental, and physical health. Students will participate in fun, engaging activities that can contribute to an optimistic outlook on their future.
Students will participate in a nine-month program meeting once a month (date, time, and location TBD). See It Through Foundation of Gwinnett mentors will support them throughout the academic year by engaging in monthly meetings and intra month conversations. The mentorship is focused on mental, physical, and social health, and academic success.
Omega STEM Program
The Omega STEM Program is a holistic, comprehensive program incorporating education and a hands on experience to assist Gwinnett County middle schoolers in their growth and development in STEM. In partnership with G3 Robotics, the Omega STEM program is committed to students, parents, and supporters to provide STEM education opportunities through experiences with robotics, coding, leggo, and drones. Omega STEM will strategically create relevant pathways that strengthen STEM awareness by providing accelerated training opportunities to local students. The See It Through Foundation focuses on equitable access to STEM programming in our underserved populations so they have the skills and knowledge necessary to determine a career in STEM. The See It Through Foundation looks beyond today's classroom to provide learning environments for tomorrow's students.
Annual Scholarship Program
Annually, See It Through Foundation of Gwinnett, a 501 (c)(3) non-profit, awards numerous scholarships to high-achieving college-bound students in the Gwinnett and adjacent communities. Events such as our Annual Drive 4 Excellence Scholarship Golf Tournament fund our program and other philanthropic initiatives. Founded in 2014, the Foundation's mission is to educate, expand, and empower minds to strengthen the lives within the communities we are so privileged to serve. Partnering with Beta Lambda Lambda Chapter of Omega Psi Phi, the organizations collectively commit thousands of hours annually to community service and invest in cause-based initiatives such as health education/screens, food and clothing drives, a national Science-Technology-Engineering-Math (STEM) program, and youth mentoring. The two organizations also partner with civic and faith-based organizations such as Overcomers House, Inc., Division of Family and Children Services (DFACS), and New Mercies Ministries to execute on their respective missions. Strategic partnerships with organizations such as you allow us to do more, give more and deepen the impact of the programs and initiatives we support.
