Project Impact, as described on the Project Impact page, is a standalone program that meets the needs of about 50 students each year during the academic term. The Affiliate Program looks to scale the Project Impact program up to take in 200 students each year. Six affiliate groups have been identified to be brought under the E3 Leadership Foundation umbrella to duplicate our program to a wider range of students. A proposed January launch would include individual sites across the county with a minimum of 35 students that would adopt the Project Impact model.
Project Impact – “Affiliate Groups” would work with E3’s staff and board on ensuring that the Project Impact model is implemented and affiliate groups would be required to achieve the same standard of excellence. Affiliate Groups would routinely consult with the E3 Foundation about mentor selection and approval, host site location, student selection and application process, program day curriculum, meals, extra-curricular activities, and off-site trips. Their students would also be encouraged to participate in monthly tutoring that the Project Impact flagship group holds. All students would have available the 5 foundational elements of Project Impact: weekly mentoring, private and group tutoring, professional mental health assessments, financial literacy coaching, and Boys and Girls Club of the CSRA Teen membership. This, along with a committed group of people to lead, should result in a successful and meaningful offering to local teens.
