Houston, TX, May 04, 2017 --(PR.com
)-- F.A.C.S. Program
of Houston launched its "Youth Intervention Series" May 1, 2017, featuring four low-cost behavior driven sessions designed for: Communities, High Schools, 1st Year College and Juvenile Courts. Description: 60-minute accelerated learning driven workshops that combine motivating and interactive dialogue, fun learning activities, object lessons, memorable metaphors and a call to action to inspire participants to apply the learning.
The F.A.C.S. Program of Houston has set its goals to be bigger than reducing dropout rates and increasing graduation completion statistics. They have a vision of giving at-risk youth the tools that they need to succeed.
F.A.C.S. strives to address family factors, academic challenges, community issues and social skills and exposure limitations as well so that students can develop the emotional intelligence and critical thinking skills necessary to assist them in bypassing the juvenile justice system and instead launching into their desired career goals or vocational training/continued education.
In the program’s original format, training sessions, workshops, seminars and coaching sessions were led by F.A.C.S. staff to 9th grade students at several schools. The program received outstanding reviews from students, teachers, principals and administrators. Several years’ later staff say that they still encounter what they now affectionately call “F.A.C.S. Sightings.”
They identify them as situations where former students come across one of the staff members in the marketplace or community and immediately have some sense of recollection about the staff person; and once they connect it back to “that program” they participated in, staff state that they can see their eyes light up.
Kevin Price, Executive Director shared recently, “that in nearly all cases, the overwhelming majority of past participants they have encountered have graduated and launched into continued education or some form of career.”
The organization spent the last few years designing, developing and publishing their most highly regarded teaching modules from the original program as participant and facilitator guides so that instructors across the country can do what their staff successfully did to a much smaller audience.
