Program Goals

Promote positive development by providing safe environments, supportive relationships, high expectations, family engagement and intergenerational activities. Trusted, neighborhood hub that helps community members access services, strengthens community bonds, and fosters a sense of belonging. Provide opportunities for all participants to develop skills, increase personal and family well being. Strengthen community life by expanding partnerships, tapping into Citys resources, encouraging residents to participate in neighborhood activities and connecting community resources to the Beacon. Support student engagement in school, including among students with chronic absenteeism.

Ensure participants and community members are viewed as potential contributors to the Beacon and the community, are enlisted to help identify local needs, and engaged in the ongoing development of Beacon programs. Program Expectations: Approach 1. Strength-based Frameworks: a. Positive Youth Development (PYD) b. Social and Emotional Learning (SEL) c. Youth Leadership 2. Safe, Welcoming and Inclusive Environment The contractor would have protocols for staff behavior and effective training and supervision to ensure the environment is friendly and supportive and everyone is treated with dignity and respect, starting from the very first encounter with program staff. 3.
