Mana 7 Charities Executive Summary

Mana 7 Charities is a nonprofit organization providing avocational educational programs, entrepreneurial mentoring, and individual skills training. Our vision is to foster a commitment in people that will promote personal development and thereby opportunity to advance in any endeavor they might wish to pursue, instilling a skills-based level of confidence and providing a path to improved employment opportunities, higher education and a sense of responsibility to their community.

The mission of Mana 7 Charities is to identify underrepresented and underprivileged students and individuals who may not able to maximize their educational or employment opportunities. The focus is less on vocational technical competencies and more on “soft” skills such as critical thinking, communication and collaboration with special attention to skills-based language competencies.

Over time, Mana 7 Charities will create a learning environment that will be an invaluable resource to our residents, aspiring mentors, providers of advanced education, business leaders and all others in our communities.

Strategies

Mana 7 Charities was established to provide supplemental academic choice through direct instruction, mentoring, and community programs as well as supporting the development of charter schools and alternative methods of individual development in underserved and underrepresented communities. The organization creates partnerships with educators, local school districts, state organizations, business professionals and other community stakeholders and will offer four distinct programs:

  • Customized Outcome-Specific Education Programs: These programs will focus on tutoring to help close achievement gaps that might exist in the application of acquired knowledge to specific readiness objectives needed to start a business, secure employment or prepare for the next level of formal education.
  • Mentoring: We feel the more coaches or mentors that are available to help students, the more successful the student.  If the student is struggling in a particular subject this program will give them the opportunity to work one-on-one with a coach or mentor to help them understand the concept in which they are struggling.

Our mission and plan is enduring.  We believe in the potential and virtue of all students.  By directing their value as individuals in their educational pursuits, we can bridge achievement gaps, help achieve graduation in higher education and provide hope and stability in their future.
