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.
 
PSO maximizes students' success by creating healthy conditions at school and in the home. Activities promote four messages:
  • Stay-in-School
  • No Drugs or Alcohol
  • Sexual Abstinence
  • No Violence

 

Relationships are developed with students through a combination of activities that include:
 
School-based Mentoring
Our mentoring program cultivates trusting relationships between adult role models and students. Mentees develop social skills, begin planning for college and set future career goals. Students develop a sense of belonging among their peers, families and communities.

 

Life Skills Education

Our life skills program address abstinence, anger management, school dropout and substance abuse.

 

High School Heroes

High school student leaders are given an opportunity to inspire elementary and middle-school youth to stay in school and reach their highest potential.

 

KAGE Events

School-wide events are held four times per year bringing thousands of middle and high school students together for an assembly addressing substance abuse, abstinence, violence prevention and the importance of staying in school.

 

A State-of-the-Art Youth Center

Our youth center serves as a safe, neighborhood hub for social events and entertainment for teenagers.

 

APPLY TO BE A HIGH SCHOOL HERO


Our Focus is Prevention

Our desire is to reach children before they are exposed to negative influences. We provide long-term solutions that bring lasting change. We accomplish this by directing our efforts on high schools and their corresponding middle and elementary schools.
