OUR MISSION

Self Enhancement, Inc (SEI) is dedicated to guiding underserved youth to realize their full potential. Working with schools, families, and partner community organizations, SEI provides support, guidance, and opportunities to achieve personal and academic success. SEI brings hope to individual young people and enhances the quality of community life.

OUR APPROACH

We know that risk factors are pervasive, extending their reach into every environment where a child spends time. We believe that we need to offer support wherever the child may need us.

Our model provides the following relational, cultural, and comprehensive support services:

IN-SCHOOL MENTORING & ADVOCACY provided during the school year by In-School Service Coordinators to maintain a consistent presence within the schools they serve.

AFTER SCHOOL, SCHOOLS UNITING NEIGHBORHOODS (SUN) & SUMMER PROGRAMMING presents opportunities for student exposure to a broad range of options including Academics, Health and Wellness, Arts and Performance, and Life Skills.

PARENT INVOLVEMENT PROGRAM works to engage families fully in their children’s progress.

POST-HIGH SCHOOL Coordinators continue to offer mentoring and support as young adults enter
the workforce or post-secondary education; and

COMMUNITY + FAMILY PROGRAMS offer a wide range of services including Parent Child Development Services, Parenting Classes, Housing and Energy Programs, Workforce Development, Domestic Violence Advocacy, among others.
