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 below.

HYPE Program

The HYPE (Helping Young People Employment) 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 16-21. The professional development team conducts an 8-week training program that culminates in each program participant being interviewed for a real job by a hiring manager.

The following subjects will be covered during the 8 week training:


Teen Power (HIV Awareness)

Teen Power is FFR HIV and AIDS awareness/prevention program 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.


“Healthy First” Nutrition

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”).

Scholarships

Faith Foundation Resources is a non-profit, tax-exempt 501(c) (3) established in 2003. Its Frances Thomas scholarship program objective is the awarding of Frances Scholarship to exceptionally worthy, financially needy, secondary school seniors for their undergraduate college education expense.

The Scholarship Committee selects the recipients after carefully evaluating character, scholastic records, financial need, extra-curricular activities and community service. No scholarship is given to a student unless his or her college has agreed to refrain from reducing its own scholarship grant at the expense of the Youth Foundation’s award.

Faith Foundation Resources encourages young people to establish permanent attitudes of self-reliance, confidence, self-discipline, responsibility, volunteerism, and exemplary character thereby benefiting their own lives, and more importantly, the lives of others.
