PAVE program graduation ceremonies at Briscoe Elementary school in Fort Worth. Tarrant County College students Jamal Evans and Alexa Garcia served as mentors and guides teaching Social Responsibility. The program changes lives.
PAVE is now planting vegetable gardens. The mothers of the children
planted the gardens with the expert help of Hermes, organic gardener.
Many of the children come to school hungry. Our program PAVE is going
to eradicate hunger. It'll be a long process, but in the meantime we are providing these kids with at least one meal to eat today.
Come and see Leon's gifted college students of TEC along side the future
generation of Leon. We will do the same in DFW in the spring. We
got the front page of the society newspaper.
We are back for the third year in a row with the P.A.V.E program. As you know, the P.A.V.E. program is designed to teach youth how to give back to their community. By participating in this program your child will develop leadership and communication skills, awareness of key world-issues, compassion for others, and most importantly the value and meaning of philanthropy. The P.A.V.E. program is founded on the idea that teaching a child to give back to others will help to develop their self-esteem and scholastic performance, by providing the children with a sense of purpose and personal responsibility.
This program is suitable for children of all ages but targeted at ages 7-13.
This year the P.A.V.E program is being offered in two tiers:
Key objectives of the P.A.V.E Tier I program are:
What happens when 15 philanthropists are in the same house? They make a difference. That's exactly what happened this December in Mazatlan, Mexico. When we first arrived there at Elizabeth Porras's house, we were all very excited to teach both kids and adults about philanthropy, volunteerism, and entrepreneurship. We were giving the PAVE program to people who have never been told to give to others before.
A few months after Philanthropy Kids first came to the Communication Club at Eastfield College, the Club had a retreat where they would learn about camaraderie, something that PAVE promotes among each class. At the retreat, we had former PAVE instructors and PAVE participants came and had a discussion with the Club members focusing around the impact it had on not only the participants, but also the instructors.
This was the first time Philanthropy Kids met with the Communications Club at Eastfield College to kick off the PAVE program with the local Dallas Independent School District schools. This was our opportunity to teach the future teachers and give them the tools and guidance to succeed in changing the lives of young kids in the city of Dallas.
