FATHERS AND BLESSINGS (FAB) NFP has established a youth sports program for children grades 3rd – 8th. The fundamental aspect for this program is we intend to provide this program for FREE and open to all children of the Dolton community.
The program includes:
Exposure to Financial Planning
Introduction to Money Management
Experienced Mentoring Staff
As aforementioned, this program is offered at no out of pocket expense to participants.
FATHERS AND BLESSINGS (FAB) NFP is also working with local school districts and other youth development organizations in order to successfully implement our Youth Employment Skills Mentorship Training Learn & Earn Program. This program is strategically designed to provide participants between the ages of 7-21 with general soft skills. This includes, but not limited to, applicable landscaping and agricultural skills that would enable them to be utilized both in the workplace and in everyday life. Skills acquired from this program will essentially prepare youth to be productive learners and earners in the workplace. This program also provides the knowledge to perform well on the job while attending additional educational and skill training programs.
Our pilot program kicked off in February of 2017 with a youth basketball league infusing calisthenics, endurance, athleticism, sportsmanship, team work, and accountability all encompassed within a sports program. In conjunction with training, discipline and self-esteem building FAB provided transportation for games and practices including uniforms for participants at no expense to the families.
