Merit Preparatory Academy

In the Junior Seminar class we explore colleges, financial aid options, the military, resumes, interviewing skills, and options to go abroad. students are shown all the different directions they can take after high school (instead of feeling like their path has already been chosen for them by family or community expectations). Usually, the girls have loftier goals than the boys!Then in Senior Seminar, the students actually choose one of these directions to pursue, and start heading in that direction, whether it's filling out college applications, securing a job, or passing military tests. I help them set goals in these areas and push them to further their plans and secure their future, as opposed to waiting until they've graduated to start figuring things out.

Reality Town

The actual Reality Town activity is two hour simulation held in a large gathering area within your school (i.e. gym, cafeteria). Before entering Reality Town students receive a Student Handbook and Personalized Pay stub which contains information about their Reality Town family; their spouse, or lack thereof, and the ages and gender of their children. As part of the preparation for the Reality Town Simulation, students learn about student and business loans and tax withholdings as they examine their personalized pay stub. In the Reality Town simulation, students make financial decisions regarding their Reality Town family and their monthly expenditures as they visit 22 different businesses that have been set up around the gym including groceries, housing, medical office, child care, etc., which are staffed by local professionals, community volunteers and parents. With each choice they make at the different businesses, students establish their Reality Town lifestyle, and determine their monthly budget. Financial Counseling and Supplemental Income Businesses provide struggling students with additional help and financial resources to aid them in their Reality Town adventure.

The Center for Women and Families has received a $60,000 grant in October 2009 to help our students' subsidize their child care costs. The average cost of full-time child care in Cedar City totals $400-500 per child. With the grant in place, for the parents that apply we can pay anywhere from 50 to 90 percent of their day care costs. Parents' subsidy amount is based on a sliding scale that takes into account their Adjusted Gross Income (AGI) and the number of credits they are currently taking. Other factors do contribute but are not as substantial. Parents, in return, are asked to volunteer 4 hours per month at their family's childcare facility or another facility that is preapproved by the CWF Director, remain in good financial standing with their family's childcare facility, participate once a month in a parenting workshop or program offered by the Center for Women and Families and maintain a 2.5 GPA (or better) for continued eligibility next academic year.

USU Extension Educational Network for Latinos, Computer Assisted Language for Non English Speakers (CALFNES)

Hector Mendiola, a retired pediatrician from Mexico City, who was living in Utah, noticed that many of the children of migrant workers were illiterate in their native tongue and so he developed, along with Fred Berthong, a local community volunteer, a computer assisted program to help Hispanic youth who were illiterate in their native language to learn to read and write in Spanish. The CALFNES program (Computer Assisted Language For Non English Speakers), which they created, and is now in the public school system, got the attention of the Mexican Federal Government, which in turn has led to recognition and connections with other federal officials and private businesses who provide educational programs to Mexicans living abroad. Other successes then followed Dr. Mendiola's success.

Utah Federation for Youth

Education: UFY provides educational opportunities and resources to youth, parents, and the community to encourage leadership and communication and to reduce and prevent drug abuse and violence. UFY programs rely increasingly on service-learning as a proven practice to develop character, skills, and leadership. As a community-based organization, UFY has taken a lead in promoting service-learning training and opportunities in order to help other local organizations to create service learning projects within their own spheres.

Target Population & Needs: Having observed the particular needs and problems that at-risk, low income, and minority youth experience in our Utah community, UFY focuses on providing access to opportunities and resources. Often, these youth lack positive interaction with adults and have limited access to appropriate resources. UFY takes the lead in creating partnerships so that local youth have increased access to mentors and facilitating programs that develop leadership skills and respect for self and community.

The Utah Federation for Youth is proud to announce the opening of our new youth center. We will be housed in the South Parc apartment complex, and our program will be a part of the complex's Hser Ner Moo Community Center. In partnership with the South Salt Lake Recreation Department, youth will receive academic support, one on one mentoring, drug and violence prevention and lots of fun activities.
