Seeking EQuality, Uniting Ourselves Ispiring Action
I am growing.
The SEQUOIA Boys/Young Men’s Empowerment Program serves all young boys/men at Tree Street Youth, from middle school to high school. SEQUOIA seeks to engage the boys of our community through group activities, athletic programming, novel experiences/outings, and 1-1 mentoring. Our goals are to create an atmosphere of trust, accountability, vulnerability/openness, camaraderie, and support. This, in return, creates a space of encouragement, kindness, and friendship. While challenging one another to take ownership of the things within each of our control whether it be decisions, mistakes, behavior, schoolwork, and the choices we all make each day.
SEQUOIA Programming also can serve as a “reporting center” for young men currently involved in the juvenile corrections system. These youth may be referred to the program or choose to participate for a specific time period for supervision and support towards reaching specific goals related to their personal growth and justice system requirements.
