A Note of Gratitude

T.H.I.N.K., formerly known as T.H.I.N.K. Mentor Academy was started in September 2013. T.H.I.N.K. is an acronym for There’s Hope In New Knowledge. T.H.I.N.K. is an organization that focuses on developing and growing life and career skills for youth between the ages of 13 to 17 and their families.

Our developmental program’s goal is to help young people learn appropriate behavior, social, and job skills to prepare them for adult life. The students learn about anger management, responsibility, how to deal with peer pressure, bullying, saving money, healthy eating habits, hygiene, behavioral skills, and provide tutoring for academics. The program also embraces the families and requires parental participation.

T.H.I.N.K. is unique by not only wanting to help youth but also embrace the family demographic to help them overcome any struggles/hurdles that they may face in their lives. The program wants to provide the necessary tools to be successful in anger management, life skills, and parenting skills.
