Future for KIDS is proud to announce that our signature, Discover Your Future program, is the 1st Trauma-Sensitive Program in the State of Arizona for elementary-aged youth.
Discover Your Future is a free, out-of-school time (OST) enrichment program that uses mentoring to improve the lives of program participants (3rd – 6th grade) by:
- Providing opportunities to engage youth in meaningful relationships with trained, caring adult mentors
- Improving youths’ physical health and nutrition
- Promoting social and emotional development
- Fostering an appreciation for academics/skill building through STEAM
Each week, participants explore a new ethics topic with their mentor, helping the youth develop positive character traits and encouraging them to respond appropriately to difficult situations. This builds self-control, character, and critical thinking skills.
Participants learn the value of teamwork, the important of being active and living a healthy lifestyle, and build confidence by engaging in 30 minutes of physical fitness activities.
Youth engage in weekly STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math) activities that integrates these 5 areas in a real world setting to build problem-solving skills. The STEAM curriculum is divided into six-week, skill building blocks: Science/Technology; Environment/nature; Music/Art; Engineering/math; Arts/Humanity; Nutrition/Health.
Free to participants, Discover Your Future is offered two hours, once a week for up to 50 youth at each partner location throughout the valley.
