Our Story

The Purpose Behind Our Mission

Beatitudes Youth Mentoring Mission (BYMM) was established in 2019 on the belief that acts of charity and kindness can change the world that we live in. We firmly believe that if we bestowed upon one another the same love and kindness that Christ has bestowed upon us, then we can bridge together individuals from all walks of life in a way that strengthens humanity as a whole. If we start these efforts with our youth and teach them the importance of being kind to one another, and how kindness contributes to the growth of their community, then they will take this message and their developed skills with them into adulthood, and help to create a better society for generations to come. Our mission is to inspire young people to spread charity and kindness throughout their community. We seek to create programs that promote social awareness and social responsibilities, while providing opportunities for young people to shine light and love into their communities, through service learning projects and other community activities. Our approach is to allow youth the opportunity to complete our program in two phases, focusing on one phase at a time. Phase 1: Peers,  Phase 2: Youths Ready. 

About

Here at Beatitudes Youth Mentoring Mission, we are driven by one single goal; to do our part in making the world a better place for all. We strive to inspire youth to be positive role models to others by displaying qualities of love and kindness. Our vision is for youth to be bold advocates of true charity, and a voice that promotes efforts to spread more kindness throughout the world. We strive to build productive relationships and make a positive impact on all of our pursuits.

Why Our Work Matters

Research shows that youth who engage in peer lead activities are more likely to speak up and solve a familiar and important problem. Offering children and youth opportunities to apply their talents and skills to take leadership and pride in their accomplishments can help change their lives and the community for the better (Spooner, 2011).

Research also suggests that bullying involvement as a victim and/or perpetrator is consistently associated with increased risk. Bullying involvement in adolescents increases the risk for subsequent suicidal thoughts and behaviors. There also appears to be a dose-response relationship between youth bullying victimization and perpetration among school-aged youths-36% and 35 %, respectively. (Journal of Community Involvement)

 

According to StopBullying.gov, children and youth who bully may benefit from community programs that separate them from their classmates. In closely supervised and structured settings, it is possible to challenge those who bully to use their social skills in constructive and appropriate ways.

Program Phases

Bringing Change

PEER MENTORING

We understand the individual needs of every youth, which is why we created the Peers program. Peers is a 20-week program that allows high school students opportunities to come together and discuss topics that affect them, their families, and their communities. Each week a focus session is held. During each session, youth participate in an activity that focuses on one of our core priority topics. Some topics include; thinking more positively, social awareness, community involvement, self-esteem,  and much more. This time allows them to share and support one another's ideas and discuss ways they can contribute to work towards a more positive result. At the end of this phase, participants receive completion certificates and may choose to continue on to the next phase of the program.

WE CARE

The We Care Program is our way of showing the community that we care. Our youth ambassadors create individualized projects on acts of kindness by providing free public giveaways.

Volunteers

Community Service and Volunteerism

Youths Ready is a volunteer support program that sends youths out into the community to assist local organizations in need of volunteer assistance.

Scholarships

 Our scholarship program is designed to inspire youths to continue on a charity and kindness journey far beyond graduation. We offer scholarships to graduating seniors who have completed at least one year of service with our organization. 

Graduation scholarships are granted at the end of each school year. Scholarship amounts vary and are determined based on the number of service hours completed and the program's length of time.

Students entering the program as a Junior will have the opportunity to gain service hours that roll over into their Senior year. This allows more time to gain hours, and it increases the chances of a greater scholarship amount.
