“Reaching Teaching Sending”
Our motto is, in essence, our mission.
“Reaching” means that our efforts begin with outreach, seeking out those juveniles and families in our community that are hurting and in need of a guiding hand. We reach out directly to young people and also have outreach assistance from others in our community including neighbors, other non-profits, social workers, school administrators, business leaders, religious workers, police officers and even court systems. Wherever and however we find these youth in need of intervention, we try to help. We also work with the local court system to provide services to perpetrators of domestic violence.
“Teaching” is the primary goal of MP360. Teaching is much more than book learning or typical classroom education. As described elsewhere on this website, the program offered by MP360 is holistic; that is, it is designed to help the whole person. MP360 “teaching” for youth includes elements of the Joven Noble curriculum that addresses specific influences in the lives of our youths that may be causing trauma and disconnection in their relationships, focusing on personal development and community, family, school and peer interactions. Teaching also involves counseling, mentoring, faith sharing, and developing life skills such as job readiness. Teaching, instructing, cajoling and guiding of perpetrators of abuse and domestic violence is also a primary objective ofMP360.
“Sending” is the ‘360-degree’ part of MP360. After reaching out to the at-risk youth (and certain adults) and teaching them through our program, we encourage our graduates to come full circle. We hope to inspire our graduates to be a light in their community, to be positive examples to their peers and to their families, and be ambassadors for MP360 by reaching out and inviting others like themselves to undergo the life-changing experience through MP360.
