Welcome to the Student Service 2014 Project Update.
This being Mission Empowerment Foundation's fourth year of supporting the Student Service program, it is good to reevaluate its progress and the agenda behind our support. The Student Service program provides a training camp for young people in our local context. They equip them in leadership qualities and understanding in how to lead educational seminars across the Omaha metro area. These week-long educational seminars are designed to encourage a number of character qualities that tie directly into an increase in educational standing and sociological development.
A study released on the Federal Health and Human Services department website summarizes a number of goal in our effort. They write about development in adolescents in terms of their prosocial behaviors, self-control, behavior regulation, social confidence and empathy. The Student Service program excels In each one of these target areas identified by HHS. Through leadership exercises, study, training, and practice, they are better equipped and prepared to lead the next generation.
The The cost of the student service leadership camp and the ongoing educational week long seminar is estimated to be 10K.
