OUR MISSION STATEMENT

Avengers mentor young men and women through sports programming and life-skills education. No matter where we are, an Avenger will foster a fair positive safe environment using respect for others, self-confidence, and leadership. 

OUR VISION STATEMENT

Creating a world where villages raise our children through mentoring, empowering them to be successful adults, and in turn, build loving compassionate communities. As we influence the thought patterns of our youth we will change the world and create unlimited possibilities. 

OUR GOAL 

The main objective is equipping youth with Life and Athletic S.K.I.L.L.S to survive:


We provide a fair positive safe environment, which keeps youth consistent in our programs, giving them more access to the skills needed to be sustainable.


We expose youth to an array of information and resources, making them knowledgeable of their opportunities.  


 We utilize programs designed to enhance youth interpersonal skills, helping to build relationships and communication between people.  


 While utilizing empathy, we have a redirection strategy that holds youth accountable, highlighting that they are liable for their actions. 


Through charity work and fun outings, youth have great experiences and develop likable personalities.   


Throughout the process of our programs, youth will acquire essential life skills, making them suitable for their career goals.

Lunch With A Mentor

Program Outline

● Each mentor will be paired with the same 10 students per grade level twice a week.

● Each session, the mentor will have the same students repeated to establish consistency and build relationships with their fellow mentees.

● The ten mentees per grade level twice a week will be preselected by the school's counselors.

● Once a week, mentors will gather their mentees from their respective lunch hours and convene in a private room chosen by the school.

Having students in this separate environment will remove distractions and foster a secure environment where students feel free to express their true selves and become more open to participating.

● During this lunch hour, students and their mentor will eat while having discussions that are centered around our T.H.I.N.K method (Teach youth life responsibility, Help youth make better life choices, Instill the importance of respect for others, Navigate the path to higher education, and Keep youth growing with opportunities for leadership).

● Mentors will work with educators to assess the evidence of each student's academic and social development. This will include:

○ Students' attention during class

○ How they work with others

○ Their responsibility with their homework and project

○ Their willingness to collaborate with others and seek assistance when needed.

● This information will be collected in survey form at the beginning, middle, and end of the school year. We will collect responses from both educators and the students themselves.

Program Outline

The athletics programs in the Avengers youth mentor organization are designed to benefit the students in HISD, who in turn become the future of the community. Extracurricular activities have been shown to play a crucial role in the development of young minds, promoting physical fitness (which increases self-esteem, focus, and energy), as well as discipline, increased academic performance, learned leadership traits, teamwork, and character-building. 

Here are some key points about our program:

Our programs emphasize the importance of education and personal growth. We encourage academic success and teach valuable life skills such as time management, goal setting, and resilience. We believe that success on and off the court goes hand in hand.

4. Professional Coaching

 This area is what makes us different. We have a team of experienced and qualified coaches who are passionate about working with young athletes. My network within sports allows me to bring in high-level individuals who will attract the attention of young kids. We offer students a chance to interact with high-level college student-athletes. The experience and credentials of students from the University of St. Thomas is well documented, they have great recognition around Houston for academics, moral values, and athletics. They provide expert guidance, focusing on skill development, teamwork, and sportsmanship.

5. Collaboration and Partnerships 

Our program collaborates with school staff and teachers to align program goals with curriculum and regulations. We also explore opportunities for cross-promotion with other school clubs or organizations.

We also work with teachers to receive academic and conduct progress updates over the 10-week camp and follow up on the continued progress of all program participants. We use data and feedback to make necessary adjustments and improvements.

In conclusion, our youth athletic programs aim to provide a comprehensive and enriching experience for students within HISD. By joining our program, students become better in the classroom, develop their athletic skills, build character, make lasting friendships, and contribute positively to the community. We believe that our programs align perfectly with the values and goals of HISD. We look forward to offering this valuable opportunity to HISD students.
