The Learning Together program focuses on mentoring middle school youth living in racially-segregated neighborhoods. These communities are typically affected by high-poverty levels coupled with a high incidence of child abuse and neglect.
Funded by the Children’s Services Council, Learning Together was developed to address the social, emotional, and developmental needs of youth in these affected communities. The program aims to reduce risk factors associated with delinquency, teen pregnancy and other risky behaviors.
Program initiatives include one-on-one coaching, group outings, opportunities to visit with community leaders, and access to technology otherwise not available to participants.
Founders Henri and Zack Crockett, both graduates of Pompano Beach’s Blanche Ely High School, owe a debt of gratitude to the mentoring they received throughout their adolescence. Learning Together allows the Crockett Foundation to advance its impact in mentoring area youth, which is one of the organization’s core competences.
