Featured in the Houston Chronicle (see News link above), creates a miniaturized world, which re-creates the inequitable systems found in the real world. Students enter as players and operate the world as family teams. Their mission is to research the inequalities and plan towards solutions. Our wold has a "real" Bank, Employment Agency, Police Force, Country Club, Hospital, Tax Office, Stock Exchange, Art Museum etc.. The arts are utilized to challenge the players to critically think and emerge as independent thinkers. They must place their faith into action.

    Action Research Curriculum

    Students Enter World of Academia

    Our Action Research Academic (ARA) program, provides students with the skills to be able to research topics in their community that are important to them. For example , they may want to research the educational system, the prison industry, healthcare, or race relations as some examples. The program is a one semester commitment and students complete two projects over two semesters. Those who are ages 12 – 25 can participate in this program.

    Mentorship

    Mentors Place their Faith into Action

    Our Mentoring Seed (MS) program is for students ages 12 -25. The purpose of the program is to provide youths with exposure to a variety of vocations that they may wish to pursue in life. Our mentoring program is unique because our mentors are individuals in the community who use their occupation to create a better world. There are three successive programs that the youth can engage in a Power Lunch, a Project Support, or a Community Intern position. Each mentoring program is structured and has specific outcome objectives.

    Travel Education

    Mentors Place their Faith into Action

    Our New Horizons Travel (NHT) program offers youths and young adults 5-25 the ability to travel to places outside of their community to expand their horizons. Based on their age and interest, students can engage in positive learning experiences in their community. After the completion of each trip student complete a photo journal diary that relays the important highlights of their experiences, which they upload to our website. This way, others can benefit and learn from their experiences and may be inspired by them.
