"New Me, Who Dis"
This introspective program for ages 25-35 that tackles the "Whole Person Model" based in D.C. Metropolitan area. Social determinants such as mindset, financial literacy, love, health, and family are recognized as the deciding factors when we are unable to achieve better outcomes. The moral of this story is things usually feel out of control when we neglect or ignore just one of those factors. New Me, Who Dis will teach you the life hacks needed to avoid the domino effect of things that will cause you to feel off balance.
The power in learning is in the action of doing. During this seven-week program, we will present a principal along with a reflective activity to articulate the participant's relationship with said activity. Reflection is the necessary bridge in the learning process that takes place when a participant is involved in a service-learning experience. The key to this program is to integrate and prioritize tools to help vulnerable populations cope with everyday issues.
Clinic participants will complete eight sessions led by our expert facilitator and work through the quitting process together.
Eight weeks may sound like a lot of time but research has proven that the more time a tobacco user spends in a supportive situation while trying to quit, the more likely they are to succeed. People who use the Freedom From Smoking Group Clinic are six times more likely to be smokefree one year later than those who try to quit on their own.
Many people don’t have the time to do their credit repair or don’t understand how to make their case. Credit repair involves fixing your bad credit in any way, shape, or form.
But when most people use the term "credit repair," they’re referring to the process of disputing errors on credit reports. The credit repair process is lengthy and requires patience, especially if you have a sizable credit history.
"You and I" is an Inner Center mentoring program for underserved adults ages 18-30 in D.C. Metropolitan Area. Adults are often overlooked as needing help navigating "Life's Journey" but statistics suggest that mentorship is important throughout our lives/careers, not just in the beginning. Our participants will be matched to mentors that strive to be the change-agent in stimulating excellence in the areas of health, mindset, financial literacy, love, and family; securing that the whole person is complete.
This two-component six-month program will include eight participants. The first six weeks of the program will be held in/as a group setting with the remainder of the program being a 1:1 experience. Even though goals vary from person to person, You and I are anchored in the belief that we can "reinvent" ourselves. That is, anyone can enhance his or her situation, surroundings, and level of success by becoming actively involved in his or her self-improvement.
Healthy Helpings is an all-age creative expression/behavioral activation group based in D.C. Metropolitan Area. We understand when a person can engage in something creative and inspiring, they can feel freer, more vulnerable, honest, and ready to connect.
This two-hour 30min meal program consists of an introduction/ framing of the event, 45min actual prep/cooking time, guided discussion, and, of course, time to eat and relax as a team. Living in poverty can both contribute to and result from impairments associated with poor mental health. Our goal of this program is for participants to gain insight into one's behavior, increased awareness about nutrition and health, and increased self-esteem.
