The Multicultural Child and Family Hope Center (MCFHC) is in partnership with Mentoring Support for Students from Military Families (MSSMF) program, building upon MCFHC’s existing mentoring program and expanding its best practice offerings to serve children from Military Families within the Tacoma Public Schools (TPS) catchment area. Military-connected children (boys and girls) ages 4 – 12 (pre-Kindergarten through school age) will be served on a continuing rotation through MCFHC’s Kids for Success mentoring program. The methodology of Kids for Success was developed by trained and dedicated teaching and mentoring staff from MCFHC. Its basis is informed by the standards and guidance set forth in MENTOR’s cornerstone publication, the Elements of Effective Practice for Mentoring™, which details research-informed and practitioner-approved standards for creating and sustaining quality youth mentoring programs and consequently impactful mentoring relationships. The objective of this program is to address and resolve social-emotional and behavioral issues that often arise for students from military families when a parent is deployed to active duty and to limit adverse academic effects and productively process loss and subsequent grief through dedicated one-to-one mentoring, aided by group-based work.
