Strength and Honor Mentoring and Tutoring

Believing that education is the most important ingredient for Ferguson’s youth to rise above the challenges many of them face in their home and community environments, SAH offers individual tutoring services to ensure children work one-on-one with a skilled adult mentor to better themselves in their areas of difficulty. Furthermore, SAH offers mentoring services for boys to help them actualize the best selves as strong, confident, honorable adults. Finally, SAH Summer Camp for boys and girls (in partnership with the City of Ferguson) brings the youth of Ferguson together to engage in community service projects together each week alongside fun team-building leisure and camping retreats, STEM-based activities, weekly field trips, and intense mentoring sessions. While many of Ferguson’s most underprivileged youth struggle most during the summer months without the services public school offers them, SAH provides a bridge of support to them and their families to help them grow intellectually and emotionally.
