Revolution Youth Advocates

The Landing, was established in 2012. This program  provides mentorship to students who are dealing with pain or addictions—including drinking, substance abuse, cutting, pornography, eating disorders, dysfunctional family dynamics, and anything else that might keep them from reaching their personal potential. This curriculum-based program employs a 12-step process developed specifically to assist students from middle school to high school gain the life skills they need. The Teen Recovery Support Group meets weekly and is guided by trained adult volunteers. The curriculum provides students with lifelong principles to help each participant address their addictive behavior, the dysfunction caused by families in addiction, and to deal with unresolved hurt and pain.  Weekly accountability and adult mentoring are vital to students making progress and overcoming obstacles,  The Teen Recovery Support Group provides these tools and a safe place to meet and talk. (We do not provide counseling services.)

Dress For Success, pairs approximately 25 students each year with an adult mentor who will help them shop for school clothes and shoes. For High School seniors we also help them choose an interview appropriate outfit. Many of the students have never been able to buy "new" clothes before. It is such a joy to see the smiles on their faces and witness their self-esteem improve right before our eyes. We hope to add additional events as support for the program is raised. 

If you are a teacher or administrator and would like to refer a student for this program please contact us.

ThreadzOur Threadz store was established in 2016.  We have partnered with the San Bernardino City Unified School District to provide a unique benefit to SBCUSD students who have been referred to our program through school site staff. Revolution Youth Advocates have been provided two classrooms on Pacific High School's campus, where referred students will be able to come "shop" and acquire clothing for school, job interviews, or special school events such as prom. We are very excited to be able to provide the necessities these students need  in a caring  environment that supports positive self-esteem. Our goal is for every student to leave knowing that they are cared for and they matter! 

If you are interested in volunteering or supporting this program please contact us.

Student Advocates, in partnership with the San Bernardino City Unified School District Revolution Youth Advocates has "adopted" Pacific High School. Every other Friday our Advocates go on campus during lunch time to talk with students and look for ways to help resource and mentor them. We have already helped make connections for a family to get health insurance, assisted with accountability to improve grades, helped with testing and provided much needed backpacks and school supplies. This year, through generous donations, we have also been able to help some graduating seniors cover the cost of their cap and gown. Our goal is to be a positive influence on the campus and to help support the staff and students any way we can. We look forward to watching this program grow and eventually expand to more campuses in the future as funding allows. 

The Broadening Horizons initiative is the most costly Revolution Youth Advocate program, but the yield is leveraged long term.  Central to this strategy is a week long summer camp experience and other retreat outings during the academic year.  Nothing is more life transforming than a week away from the urban culture.

Many students who participate in the Broadening Horizons summer camp experience have never spent a night in the mountains that surround the Inland Empire.  Their social-economic realities would never allow them to consider an opportunity of this nature.  The vast majority of those who participate require half to full  sponsorship. These opportunities to escape the chaos of home and their own communities are essential in helping the students focus on their own personal growth and give them hope for a life beyond the struggles they now face.
