RIVERA AND RIVERA ACT AGAINST FORECLOSURE INC.
SCHOOL H.U.G.S BULLYING
PREVENTION AND MENTORING PROGRAM
This Program is a free afterschool Program to serve the Hampden County geographical area.
The Program provides a safe place for these at risk-youth or individuals to spend after school hours while instilling a sense of belonging and fostering a heightened level of academic achievement.
Youth mentors serves as a role model, getting the youth ages 6-18 involved in social and community activities encouraging them to make safe decisions while avoiding risky behaviors, and at the same time boosting their self-esteem, indirectly monitoring their progress at school and at home.
Work and activities aim to provide the skills necessary for academic success while also increasing work opportunities and enhancing the perception of the youth as a positive force in the community.
We show our commitment to youth through the SCHOOL H.U.G.S BPMP that supports their health, wellness, productivity, leadership development and education.
In the summer-time our Mentoring Program in collaboration with NEFWC Summer Youth Program provides students, participants and or individuals ages 14-24 to partake job opportunities.
