What do you want to be when you grow up? A pretty standard question when interacting with a child. There is nothing more exciting than talking to kids about what they see for their future. As adults we know that these goals often require a plan of attack. Study hard, save up money, job shadow, build a resume, and the list goes on. These all seem like pretty standard steps to take, but often times require a resource that goes overlooked. Support. I am not sure I could have made it through that whole process if not for the support of my family, friends, mentors, and teachers.
For our kiddos, that support system sometimes needs some extra layers. Our families work so hard and often times still come up short for what some goals require. At Tiqvah, we want to be another resource to help them achieve success in all they do. School is just the beginning. Our vision says “...success in school AND IN LIFE.” We measure success with a bigger yardstick than a diploma. We want our kids to dream big and to know that there is more to their future than a high paying job. They can give back to their community, have a family of their own, demonstrate character in all they do, and love their neighbor as themselves.
Success is bigger than their job; it’s who they become. How are we supporting our kids as they are molded and shaped into the adults they will become? What examples are we providing for them to model? This is all part of the success of our students. We provide team leaders who help with homework, provide educational games and challenges, and check in regularly with their parents and teachers. These same team leaders also pray for their kids, talk one on one after a tough day, model love and kindness for others, and offer correction when boundaries are crossed. This support both educationally and emotionally will prayerfully guide our kids to success in life.
Want to learn more? Want to see this in action? One week from today our kids will be the feature presentation at our Evening of Hope. We would love for you to join us, support the work we are doing, and enjoy seeing our kids talent on display.
