    Funding will be used for the purchase of a building to house Dream Big Mentoring Program and a van to transport all juveniles to school and activities. Funding will also be used to purchase hygiene items, school clothes and school supplies.

  • Business Plan

    My business will grow throughout the next 5 years due to “word of mouth”, social media exposure, and the media. I bring my at-risk juveniles to various nursing homes. The at-risk juveniles and I typically polish female residents nails, play bingo, and/or checkers with residents. I strive to instill discipline, respect, & selfless service in the juveniles I mentor. I’m a police officer that has specifically worked in the schools as a school resource officer for the past 6 years. I started mentoring children and created a program for my police department to help at-risk juveniles. I received a promotion and no longer work in the schools. The program I created suffered because no officer wanted to invest the time needed to keep it going. Parents started reaching out to me because the kids I helped started reverting back to their old ways which involved them being disrespectful, skipping school, and making bad grades. I created my own nonprofit organization to help the juveniles. All the at-risk juveniles need is someone to care and help them along the way. I’m already established in my community. Parents and juveniles know me and value the work I do with at-risk juveniles. I set goals for them and help them to reach those goals. I frequently bring my group of juveniles to visit various nursing homes. The juveniles and I play checkers, bingo, read to, and polish nails of elderly residents. My trips to the nursing homes helped to instill respect, discipline, and selfless service in juveniles. There are no juvenile programs in my area that assist at-risk juveniles. I service 20 to 30 juveniles at a time. I could service much more if I had more funding. I purchase and issue at-risk juveniles, snacks, clothing, hygiene items, and school supplies. I’m sure once I get funding and/or investors I will be able to help more juveniles and work with them full-time. Children are our future! I consider the work I do with them as an investment into our future.

  • Self Identified Competition

    There are no known competitors in my area. I have parents contacting me it seems every other day pleading with me to make room in my program for another child. I currently have no competitors. One thing that makes my program different from other youth mentoring programs is the youth get to work with a police officer (me) often. Together we do a lot of community service and hands on activities to help them to be productive members of society.
