World of Powerful Youth Future
Ashley Hammock will be our guest on Live Wire this week to talk about the World of Powerful youth an d their upcoming event “Future Leaders Kidpreneur Mixer”. World of Powerful Youth is a nonprofit agency providing educational and mentoring programs for elementary, middle and high school youth in the Greater Sacramento area. The program will form partnerships with local school districts and the low income housing communities. World of Powerful Youth’s goal is to foster a commitment to young people that will promote pro-social friendships, strong interpersonal skills, and reassert a sense of hope in the future. Only through personal relationships can a sense of individual responsibility be reestablished that will give youth the commitment to follow through on path to adulthood with a sense of prid
e and accomplishment. Through repeated failures in the classroom and the development of destructive habits, at-risk young people have lost faith in the possibilities that await them if they are successful in putting their lives together. To accomplish this goal, young people must be in a caring, inclusive learning environment that promotes their best effort and reinforces personal respect. .
