For Youth Empowerment
Fortress Academy for Youth Empowerment (FAYE)
is a non profit agency which provides mentoring to low income and at risk middle and high school youth in the Southern Dallas area. FAYE forms patrnerships with local school districts and the juvenile court system.
The repeated failure in the classroom, plus the development of destructive habits, pushes young people to lose faith in the future which awaits them. In order to accomplish goals, our youth must be afforded a, inclusive learning enviroment that promotes their best efforts, while reinforcing personal respect.This mentor program is directed at the young people who are facing a difficult life, through social pressure, conflicts at home and school, or are already entangled in the juvenile court system. The goal of this program is to take an pro-active approach by identifying youth facing difficulties in the transition to adulthood.
FAYE will provide a positive support system to help these youths avoid the pitfalls that can derail their lives. The focus is slightly different at each level but the goal remains the same; empowering young people to make the right decisions and change in their lives.
Over time, FAYE's learning enviroment will be an invaluable resource to young people,aspiring mentors and the community at large.
