Genesis & Light Center's Educational Assistance Mentoring Pr
 
 
 
Genesis & Light Center's Educational Assistance Mentoring Project (GLEAM) will develop academic learning centers for families attending low performing schools to assist students in passing district test in the Hinds and surrounding counties. VISTAs will help expand program services for low income families and address issues related to education and poverty. The 3-5 year project will focus on empowering youth by promoting 1) academic excellence, 2) substance-free lifestyles, and 3) provide youth an alternative to youth crime. The objective of this project is to promote education, values, positive attitudes, high levels of self-esteem, and strengthen students and their families in such a way to avoid a life of crime and of poverty. The purpose of this project is to decrease and discourage youth involvement in sex, drugs, crimes, violence or other delinquent behaviors.
