We Offer Various Programs As Well As A Scholarship.
Faith Foundation Resources offer several programs, such as our HYPE Program. You can find more information on our programs and scholarship opportunity
HYPE (Helping Young People to Employment) is a job-readiness and financial literacy program was started by Faith Foundation Resources in 2011 as a response to the gap in training that young people receive before entering the workforce. This professional training program teaches youth and young adults ages 16-24. The professional development team conducts a 8-week training program that culminates in each program participant being interviewed for a real job by a hiring manager. HYPE classes are currently offered in Illinois and Michigan. For more information on our upcoming classes and program content, please use the contact form.
Our students are truly taking advantage of the skills learned from participating in the H.Y.P.E. program. Click to view our article of one of the many student success stories, highlighted on ABC News.
Teen Power (HIV Awareness)/ Human Trafficking
“Teen Power” HIV/AIDS Awareness/Prevention Program is FFR geared toward educating teens, and young adults on HIV prevention through information, role play, and skit. “If Only for One Night” skit looks at teen dating through the eyes of high school students. Using performing arts as a way to bring awareness to foster healthy sexual choices for teens and the young adult community.
The skit addresses how one night of drinking, partying and unprotected sex could change a teenager’s life and future. The future goal of Faith Foundation is to take our “If Only for One Night” play to surrounding colleges and universities to heighten the awareness of this important subject matter.
“Teen Power” HIV/Human Trafficking Performing Arts Program purpose is to serve in two ways. (1) to strengthen the skill set of young performing arts students through play acting. (2) Bring awareness to the epidemics of HIV and Human Trafficking which effects hundreds of youth and young adults every year. Around the country, and right here in Michigan, men, women and children are forced into prostitution domestic servitude and other labor for little or no pay. Human trafficking is a modern-day form of slavery and is a large and growing criminal industry

“Roots” Cultural Based Nutrition Program
We live in a world capable, in principle, of providing a diverse and healthy diet for all, and yet one quarter of its people suffer from frequent hunger and ill health generated by diet that is poor in quality, quantity or both. Another quarter of the world’s population eats too much food, food that is often heavy with calories and low on nutrients (colloquially called “junk food”). R Albritton – Food and Culture: A Reader, 2013. As a result Faith Foundation will work to combat these issues through our Healthy First Program.
“Roots” Faith Foundation’s six-week culturally based nutritional cooking program is designed to educate communities about the nutritious, plant-based, whole foods traditionally eaten by ancestors. The 6-week program is designed to help bridge culture and nutrition. Each of the six lessons incorporates cultural history, nutrition, cooking instruction, and testings in order to reconnect students to a long lineage of healthy eating. The cooking classes empower participants with the knowledge, confidence, and skills to prepare healthy recipes at home. The course progresses as follows:
- Lesson 1: Herbs & Spices
- Lesson 2 Leafy Greens
- Lesson 3 Whole Grains
- Lesson 4 Beans & Rice
- Lesson 5 Tubers & Mashes
- Lesson 6 Fruits & Vegetables
The Program will impact children who attend the daycare centers, parents and families of children who attend the daycare centers, and daycare center staff. Families and friends of participants will be impacted as participants promote their easy and healthy recipes on social media at the end of each session. The community will be impacted by learning about healthy food preparation at the Healthy Food Fun Fair.
