CORE is very pleased to announce a new partnership with the local non-profit, Nehemiah Community Development Corporation! Beginning this Thursday, April 26th, we will begin a pilot program working with the LIGHT Program (Learning Is our Greatest Hope for Tomorrow) of Nehemiah. This new offering will provide targeted at-risk youth with training and mentoring to help enrich their physical and academic development.
This pilot will be a six-week program with four at-risk youth who will be required to required to participate in a pre-college curriculum and attend the LIGHT after-school academic program. We will be measuring not only physical performance but also goals, grades and overall outlook in order to track progress and evaluate the pilot.
Even though this is a very small sample size, we are hoping that over the next six weeks we can show considerable improvement that will allow CORE to obtain the funding to really grow this program to involve a larger number of at-risk youth in the Madison community.
If you would like to learn more about the LIGHT Program at Nehemiah, please contact Autumn Swain at email@example.com or grab CORE member Alex Gee during his workout! If you would like to get involved in the program here at CORE in any way contact Kane at firstname.lastname@example.org.
