Propel Youth Mentoring

Propel is UNPLUGGED's mentoring program for elementary through high school students. Our program is designed to PROPEL students into developing their social and creative skills with the intent of impacting their community. Our program is officially housed at Briarwood Elementary in Charlotte NC. Scroll down for more. 

Rubies

Every young girl is priceless but not too many young girls know that they are. Our goal with our Rubies program is to help young girls from 4th grade to 12 grade discover and walk in their worth. Our mission is to make sure every girl knows that her worth is far beyond rubies and that they can become whoever they desire to be. Our curriculum incorporates social, emotional and leadership training, preparing young women to excel in business, school, and the creative arts.

Heirs

Every young man is an Heir but not too many are ready to be King. Our goal is to help young men develop the skills they need to one day be a king and to learn how to steward a career, a family a business, an idea etc. Our curriculum and resources are designed to help them follow the right principles and lead accordingly.

The Process

Our goal is to walk each student that is within our program from 4th grade to college. Our aim is to ensure that we support as many students as possible as they go through their different challenges.  

 

We are currently at Briarwood Elementry located in Charlotte NC and it is one of Charlotte's Title One schools, meaning that most of the students that go to Briarwood are living in some rough conditions and need support even for their basic needs. Our heart is to become the village for these students, helping them see that they can make it too. We teach within our curriculum that no matter what environment they are in they don't have to be the product of that environment but instead they can make that environment a product of them. 

 

Coach Josh aka Mr. Eze currently works at Briarwood as one of their BMT's (Behavior Modifications Technician). His heart has always been to not just impact a child for a moment but to walk along side them through as many moments as possible. Him and his team have developed a curriculum that will focus on helping students discover their purpose and find the value in their why. Our focus will be on 

  • Social Skills and Behavioral Development 
  • Academics and Social Change
  • The Creative Arts and Written Expression 
  • Entrepreneurship and Athletics

We want to make sure that each student understands their worth and how they can contribute to their community. We will be developing projects that will help them understand team work and the joys of hard work. 

We know that the process from Point A to Point Z is not always an easy one but with Gods help and with the help of those He sends we believe we can IMPACT Briarwood, CMS and other School Districts.

Saturday Workshop

We hosted a Saturday Workshop focusing on helping students discover their passions as well as helping them develop products that would impact their peers and their community. We will be hosting another one June 3rd. 


LEMONADE

The theme of our program this year was "MAKE LEMONADE". We wanted to inspire our students that no matter what life throws at them they can make lemonade. During this project we were able to partner with a lemonade company Spoon Farms and with musicians Ike Hill and Cutright of the Justhis League to develop Brairwoods own Blueberry and Strawberry lemonade as well as devlope a lemonade song.
