The Javon Jarrell Foundation is a nonprofit organization providing youth mentoring programs to at-risk students of Nevada. Youth mentoring programs will form partnerships with Nevada school districts, group homes, juvenile court system(s) and other partnerships deemed applicable to our mission. The primary goal for the Javon Jarrell Foundation is to foster a commitment to the youth that will promote proactive mentoring, pro-social friendships, strong interpersonal skills, and reassert a sense of hope for the future of our youth. Only through meaningful relationships can a sense of individual responsibility be reestablished, which in return gives mentees the commitment and motivation to follow through on their guided path to adulthood with a sense of confidence and accomplishment.

Through repeated failures in the classroom and the development of destructive habits, young people have lost faith in the possibilities that await them if they are successful in the reconstruction of there lives through mentoring relationships. To accomplish this goal, young people must be in a caring, inclusive learning environment that promotes their best effort and reinforces personal respect.

Our programs are in direct response to the growing number of young people that are either falling through the cracks at school or are already entangled with the juvenile court system. The goal of the program is to identify youths who are going to have a turbulent transition to adulthood and offer a positive support system to avoid the pitfalls that can derail their lives. The focus is slightly different at each level but the goal remains the same; empower the young person to make positive changes in his/her life.

Javon Jarrell Foundation will focus on students K-12 but more strongly on middle school youths. It is projected that within three years, 50% of the system’s students will be in middle school. This age group is particularly problematic and a more desirable time for structured mentoring to be effective.

Javon Jarrell Foundation mentoring programs will pair youth mentors and mentees for the duration of 9 months. During that time the two will participate in weekly engagements and monthly planned activities to strengthen the relationship between the two and improve youth confidence and hopefulness. Mentors will receive continuous training throughout this time and will participate in a monthly meeting for progress reports.

Over time, Javon Jarrell Foundation will create a more proactive environment that will be a valuable resource to young people, aspiring mentors and the community at large.
