Youth Enrichment Academy was formed in early 2020. Our goal is to help enrich the lives of each student and family we serve. We achieve this through our tutoring and mentoring platforms. Our dedicated team works tirelessly to ensure that each student has the ability to learn in a way that is uniquely designed to their individual learning style and interest. And the best part...it is 100% FREE.
Phase 1: Assessment
Each student is assessed using the New York Common Core Standards Assessment. Once Assessed, we are then able to determine the students strengths and opportunities. We zero in on the opportunities for improvement using New York Common Core Standard Code. During the assessment we identify our students' passion and purpose. Passion and purpose are distinct. Passion is about emotions, the motivation and what makes us feel good, i.e. “do what you love”. Purpose is the reason, or the why behind what we do, primarily for others, i.e, “do what contributes”.
Phase 2: Customized Lesson Planning
Using the unique code from our initial assessments, we incorporate the students passion and purpose in designing a lesson plan catered to what profession they desire, as well as interested hobbies they may have. Each student is sent home with a waiver for their teacher to connect directly with our tutors so we may provide lessons that the teacher plans to execute in the coming week.
Phase 3: Connecting with a Mentor
Our tutoring program is only part of the package. Each parent has the option to sign their student up in our mentoring program. Our mentors work vigorously to ensure that each student's basic emotional needs are met. This may appear to be all fun and games to the student, however, our mentors are continuously assessing the students emotional and mental state to ensure they are getting the best love and care possible.
Phase 4: Review and Report
Each tutor must complete monthly and each semester reviews of each student. Each month we will release a progress report to the parent and teacher. This way we keep our communications strong. This will allow us to examine and determine other areas of educational opportunities that may arise. Our team is currently working on a google and apple supported app to connect parents, students, and tutors, similar to the app used by the New Public School system.
Phase 5: Completion of Program
For some students, this may be timelier than for others. This is ok! Our tutors are prepared to consistently work with each student until the student, parent, tutor, and teacher feel the student has successfully completed the set forth tasks and has gained the necessary knowledge entailed. Successful completion of the tutoring program will qualify each student to receive a grant for continuing their education! The size of grant and its execution will be determined after the tutoring program has been completed.
