Challenge

The Tuskegee community is located in one of the poorest Alabama counties. 6-18 yr olds from low income homes need tutorial assistance with their school work assignments. Many of the assignments, also need internet and computers, which most don't have. Some neighborhoods are just getting the infrastructure for the web to be available. The only public access computers is the town library, with limited evening hours, but most low income youth have no transportation to get there.

Solution

Safe Haven is in a public housing community. 6-18 year olds can walk to the program, and others are picked up from school to attend. The program provides a safe place to do homework, and be tutored, with computers and internet access. There is also training in the performing arts, crafts, gardening, and website design. The children have game nites, educational presentations, college student mentors and a nutritional meal. The youth also assist the elderly and disabled residents.

Long-Term Impact

This will help 50 youth from low income households to achieve the educational skills needed, so they may graduate from high school, and advance to college or trade school, as the first in their family to complete higher education.
