We are proud to announce the commencement of the First Serve PRISM (Preparing Responsible Intelligent Student Mentors) Program, Tri-City Glades. In an effort to create greater unity and to provide more uniform instruction, we have consolidated our Pahokee, Belle Glade, and South Bay programs into one dynamic campus. Our new home, First Baptist Church of Belle Glade, offers larger, more updated facilities with classroom space, recreational space, a gymnasium, and a cafe.
In partnership with the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office and First Baptist Church, we are offering our unique after-school peer mentoring program to middle and elementary school children. The staff of is dedicated to teaching life skills, offering homework assistance, providing food, and facilitating recreational activities.
Also deeply rooted in creating self-awareness, the curriculum used is geared towards teaching skills that prepare students for life-long success. This is our biggest and most expensive site. It is staffed by 12 teen mentors and 3 supervisors. We are serving the community 5 days a week, from 3 pm to 6 pm and are averaging 100 children per day.
