Public Schools Outreach (PSO)

Public Schools Outreach serves as the primary vehicle for the delivery of social services to urban youth and their families in 61 public schools in Dallas County as part of the church-adopt-a-school program. The heart of the program is maximizing student success by creating healthy conditions at school and in the home. Activities promote four messages: stay-in-school, no drugs or alcohol, sexual abstinence, and no violence.


Relationships are developed with students through a combination of activities that include:
  • School-based Mentoring cultivates trusting relationships between adult role models and students, developing prosocial skills in students and a sense of belonging among their peers, families, and communities.
  • Life Skills Education addresses sexual abstinence, anger management, school dropout and substance abuse issues in a school setting.
  • High School Heroes gives high school student leaders an opportunity to inspire elementary and middle-school youth to stay in school and reach their highest potential.
  • KAGE Events are held four times per year bringing thousands of middle and high school students together for a challenging talk and entertainment, promoting drug-free, abstinence, no violence, and stay-in-school messages.
  • A State-of-the-Art Youth Center serves as a neighborhood hub for a variety of social and entertainment activities for young people.
